Vince McMahon probably saw Kofi furrow his brow every week and screamed, "Goddamn, pal, look at that acting! That's good shit! That gives me an idea!"

Netflix and WWE are teaming up on a new live-action family movie, “The Main Event,” which will star Seth Carr, Tichina Arnold, Ken Marino, Adam Pally and WWE Superstars Kofi Kingston, The Miz, and Sheamus, among others.

The movie follows an 11-year-old aspiring wrestler (Carr), who after discovering a magical mask, enters a competition to become the next WWE Superstar.

Production on the movie, which will be directed by Jay Karas off of an original screen play by Larry Postel, begins this week in Vancouver. “The Main Event” is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2020.

WWE Studios’ Susan Levison is executive producer, along with Maggie Malina. Richard Lowell of WWE Studios is producer.

“The Main Event” joins Netflix’s growing slate of live action movies featuring kids and teens and made for families, which includes the upcoming comedy “Tall Girl,” “A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting,” and “Hello, Universe,” which is based on Erin Entrada Kelly’s novel.

WWE Studios is WWE’s multi-platform content division that develops and produces scripted and non-scripted series, documentaries and feature films. Recent projects include the feature film “Fighting With My Family,” HBO documentary “Andre the Giant,” and reality-TV series “Total Divas,” “Total Bellas,” “Miz & Mrs.”

So when he puts the mask on does he gain an adult body too, kinda like a Shazam-type deal?

Hopefully filming the movie means Miz takes a break from WWE TV just so he doesn't have to aimlessly job to everyone in meaningless matches every week, or worse keep jobbing to Shane.
