(Tampa, FL) February 4 - Gene Snitsky, who wrestled under the name Snitsky with WWE, has teamed up with Los Angeles-based producer, Suzanne DeLaurentiis, and famed director, Jay Lee, for the upcoming movie 'Manhunt'
The movie has just been nominated by the Horror Society Movie Awards in the category of 'Most Anticipated Film of 2013'. 'Manhunt' is about Buck Severs (Gene Snistky), a world-wrestling champion that has been down on his luck for the past three years.
After a family tragedy and a major injury in the ring Buck decides to return to "Bro's Weekend" with his three best friends and try to put some perspective into his life. Buck learns a little too late that the weekend will take place on a Wildlife Preserve that has been closed for 40 years (a densely forested no-man's land of no laws, no rangers and no rules).
Unfortunately for Buck, he finds out that on the preserve lives a wild man, a feral and inbred killer whose one pleasure is to hunt the humans that dare to trespass onto his domain. It will be up to Buck to find the fighter within himself if he is to survive the weekend, and if he is to win the ultimate wrestler versus psycho killer mountain man winner - takes- all.
Gene was a member of WWE from 2004 to 2008. His debut with WWE started a feud with Kane that had epic repercussions.
