Lionsgate is looking to go stone cold with the help of Steve Austin. Though I am not entirely convinced in the transition of wrestlers to film -- save The Rock -- the studio is gambling on Austin for The Condemned.
Movie Poster: The Condemned
An adrenalin-charged action thriller, The Condemned tells the story of Jack Conrad (Stone Cold Steve Austin), who is awaiting the death penalty in a corrupt Central American prison. He is “purchased” by a wealthy television producer and taken to a desolate island where he must fight to the death against nine other condemned killers from all corners of the world, with freedom going to the sole survivor. The producer films the illegal event, airing the killings live and uncensored onto the internet.

The trailer available over at MySpace makes the film look like a combination of Surviving the Game and Running Man.
The Condemned has a theatrical release on April 27th.
