Multi-time WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair is set to be star in the latest reboot of “Walking Tall”, following in the footsteps of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who starred in a previous version in 2004.
Flair is no stranger to reboots after she joined Alexa Bliss as guest stars in a recent episode of the “Punky Brewster”‘ reboot, however this time she is centre stage as she will play the part of “a Tucson cop who finds herself caught in a web of fraud, exploitation and murder, and is forced to go full vigilante to protect her home town from falling victim to modern corruption.”
Flair’s role will follow the footsteps of original actor Joe Don Baker, as did The Rock’s take, as the characters are “professional wrestlers turned lawman.”
The producer, David Eick, is hopeful that the movie will be successful enough to birth a franchise in the coming years.
