Lionsgate Entertainment has agreed to distribute World Wrestling Entertainment's new film, The Condemned, starring Stone Cold Steve Austin and Vinnie Jones.

Austin will play a man on death row in a corrupt Central American prison; Variety adds he's "purchased" by a wealthy TV producer, who pits him and nine other condemned men in a battle to the death.

Scott Wiper is writing the script for The Condemned which will start production in Australia late next month.
