- Above is a new trailer for Boone: The Bounty Hunter, a stunt-filled action comedy made by and starring John Hennigan, f.k.a. John Morrison.

The movie follows Boone (John Hennigan), a fame-seeking reality show bounty hunter, and his crew, Kat (Spencer Grammer), Denny (Osric Chau) and Jackson (Quinton Jackson) as they 'Boone' delinquent celebrities such as Kevin Sorbo. When Boone gets the news that his TV show is being cancelled, he attempts to spike ratings and save his show by taking his crew to Mexico to arrest a real criminal. Things get complicated in Mexico after Boone's crew gets arrested and Boone is faced with a decision between ambition and justice. The movie is directed by Robert Kirbyson and produced by Hoplite Entertainment and Killon Street.
"I grew up on action movies, I'd watch my favorites over and over again," Hennigan said. "I aimed to make Boone to be the type of movie that I would have loved growing up, I'm stoked about how the movie came out! If you think the things I've done in my wrestling career are crazy just wait till you see this movie!"
