Emily Blunt is reportedly in talks to join her Jungle Cruise co-star Dwayne Johnson in new film The Smashing Machine which revolves around the world of MMA. Johnson is headlining the film for filmmaker Benny Safdie who is writing and directing.

The project is being set up at A24 with the story based on the 2002 documentary, The Life and Times of Extreme Fighter Mark Kerr, which is directed by John Hyams.

Johnson will play Kerr in the film with the production kicking off this summer. Variety reports that Blunt is in talks to play Dawn Staples, Kerr’s wife.

The Smashing Machine is described as is ‘a drama based on the story of Mark Kerr, the legendary MMA fighter from the no-holds-barred era of the UFC at the peak of his career. He struggles with addiction, winning, love and friendship in the year 2000.’

Blunt appeared with Safdie in last year’s box-office juggernaut Oppenheimer.
