“The action genre has been a very big and important part of my career. There is no better way to extend my love for dynamic action based entertainment than with a company like WWE, who have been entertaining fans for decades with incredible visuals and deliciously entertaining storylines,” commented Snipes. “Maandi strives to create elevated multi-media content that appeals to all demographics worldwide - from childhood fan to feature film collaborators. Wow, sooo cool! We are all incredibly excited to share visions.”

Danny McBride stars as Dundee’s Son In Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home

It seems legit but also comes off as a parody.
