“We’ve got a movie coming to town. Salma Hayek comes back to town, too.” Yes, please!
That sounds just perfect, especially when we add another name to the upcoming movie, Kevin James!
Perfect combination for The Sony Pictures comedy that is being written by The Switch screenwriter Allan Loeb.
“It’s about a physics teacher whose school is facing drastic budget cuts.
In order to earn money to save his best friend’s job and the music program that his students hold dear, he moonlights as an MMA fighter, and ultimately winds up doing battle in the UFC.”
Professional MMA fighter Bas Rutten is reportedly in talks for a role in the film as well.
At this moment, no director is currently set for the untitled MMA project.
If Hayek is cast (no offer is officially out), it would be Hayek’s second movie with James, after Grown Ups.
As usual, we’ll pay good attention on this project, so make sure you stay tuned!
