Rampage Jackson To Star In Self Written MMA Themed Film
“I couldn’t pass up on that dream to do pro wrestling, and Viacom gave me my own reality show, which starts shooting very soon, and Viacom [owns] Paramount Pictures, and they’re going to have me doing movies. The first movie I’m doing is the one I wrote. I’ve seen a few MMA movies out there and I just wasn’t happy with the way they portrayed MMA period and the fighters. They just didn’t hit the true essence of what it takes to be an MMA fighter. Me being an MMA fighter — I’ve been in it for 12, 13 years — I decided to make a movie [about] something that goes on with me and just some other parts of MMA that people don’t really talk about. I made a movie about the brotherhood and stuff in MMA and the inside and how the promoters are. I think the script is really good. … I let a couple of people read it and they were like, ‘Wow.’ A lot of people think it could be kind of like a type of MMA movie that people could really attach themselves too and make a couple of sequels from it. … I just want you guys to know I’m sitting down with a professional writer, somebody that can help me write it and bring it to life a little bit more because I’m not a writer.”
In a recent interview with Sherdog.com, Rampage Jackson explained his plans for the future, including a stab at writing movies for Paramount pictures.
