The WWE is stating that their demand for a retraction to a recent article was "simply complying with a state statute aimed at protecting potential libel defendants by 'ensuring that they are given an opportunity to avoid liability' before being brought into court."
- WWE Studios and Troika Pictures, LLC announced they will co-produce and co-finance the upcoming thriller, The Hive, starring Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin. The thriller, to be directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Transsiberian), is about an Emergency Call Center Operator (Halle Berry) who takes a call from a teenage girl, Casey (Breslin), who has been abducted and carried away in the trunk of a car. The kidnapping plays out in real time as Jordan and Casey work together to track down the killer in this high stakes thriller.
"The Hive is an ideal addition to WWE Studios' slate of films given its strong award-winning cast and exciting story," said WWE Studios president Michael Luisi. "We are looking forward to working with Brad Anderson and Troika Pictures on this picture."
- Meanwhile, what can be considered WWE Studios' first-ever film, No Holds Barred, releases on DVD for the first time on July 3rd. WWE posted this video of several superstars discussing the film:
