WWE Studios announced today that they have acquired US distribution and worldwide remake rights to the French film "Queens of the Ring." WWE Studios originally partnered with Warner Bros. on the French production "Les Reines Du Ring" that was released in France last summer.
The comedy centers on Rose, a mother attempting to re-connect with her estranged son, a passionate WWE fan. The mother then trains to become a WWE Diva.
"Les Reines Du Ring" stars Marilou Berry (Rose), Nathalie Baye (Colette), André Dussollier (Richard), Audrey Fleurot (Jessica) and features WWE Superstars Mike "The Miz" Mizanin and Eve Torres.
"We are excited to acquire distribution and remake rights to a wonderfully entertaining comedy like 'Queens of the Ring,'" said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. "This film gives WWE Studios the opportunity to introduce a 'feel good' story to a broad audience, while serving up a film we know our core fans will also enjoy."
