The following is an excerpt from a new article on the Gov Monitor website:
WWE Studios’ action-adventure stars Superstar John Cena®, Ethan Embry, Michael Rispoli, Boyd Holbrook and Amy Smart.
Governor Bill Richardson and WWE® today announced that WWE
Studios’ production of Blood Brothers has begun principal photography in
The production is expected to hire approximately 140 New Mexicans for the cast and crew.
“WWE® is a global brand that has a tremendous following and I am
excited the production is filming in New Mexico,” said Governor
Richardson. “These kinds of projects help promote the state’s film
industry and continue to provide good, high-wage jobs for New Mexicans.”
WWE Studios executive vice president Michael Pavone (That’s What I Am) will direct Blood Brothers from his original screenplay.
In the film, the Cleary brothers, Sam (JOHN CENA), Leo (ETHAN
EMBRY) and Douglas (BOYD HOLBROOK) take dysfunctional families to a new
level: Sam and Leo have grown up hating each other and neither likes
their juvenile delinquent kid brother, Douglas, to whom they’ve only
recently been introduced.
The sons share the same father, a womanizing drunk, but all have
different mothers. Their father died a rich man and when they’re brought
together by their sister Nina (AMY SMART) to learn which of them will
inherit the old man’s fortune, they are handed an unpleasant surprise.
A requirement of the will is that the three estranged siblings go
into business together. Their first job is to bring in a parole
violator, who has left Leo, a bail bondsman, with a $250,000 debt.
Their search will take them into the mountains of Mexico where
they encounter a drug lord and uncover a kidnapping plot, masterminded
by an embittered entrepreneur (MICHAEL RISPOLI) that will endanger them
