Wrestlier-turned-actor “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will star in The Stranger, an action-thriller to be directed by Rob Lieberman in Vancouver this summer, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Austin has just completed principal photography on Damage, a fight film costarring Walton Goggins and produced by Nasser Entertainment Group and Caliber Media Co. — both of which companies will also produce The Stranger. Austin is a six-time WWF Champion and the only man in WWE history to win the Royal Rumble three times.
