Lionsgate and WWE Studios announced today the second film in their action six-pack deal which extends the long standing partnership between the two companies and serves as starring vehicles for WWE Superstars.

Directed by Stephen Reynolds (Tomb Raider Ascension) and featuring WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose, Lockdown was written by Nathan Brooks and Bobby Lee Darby (See No Evil 2) and is set to commence principal photography this August.

Lockdown follows a police officer who returns to duty after recovering from a gun shot wound to discover incriminating evidence of illegal activities against those closest to him. He quickly finds himself trapped inside his own precinct, hunted and in search of the truth, as the crooked cops stop at nothing to recover the evidence.

"As the second installment to the action six pack series, 'Lockdown' will continue to energize and excite with the high level of adrenaline our fans have come to expect from our films," said Michael Luisi, WWE Studios President.

"The latest installment in our six pack has it all -- powerful suspense, nonstop action and a brand name WWE Superstar," said Lionsgate Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President Steve Beeks. "We're proud to continue our long-standing partnership with WWE Studios, whose prowess in marketing to their global fan base delivers a consistent track record of commercial success."

WWE Studios and Lionsgate previously collaborated on The Condemned and See No Evil, as well as the upcoming 2014 releases Leprechaun: Origins, See No Evil 2 and Vendetta.
