Duhamel To Turn Director

After a successful career in front of camera, actor Josh Duhamel is all set to go behind the camera to direct his first movie "The Buddy Games".

The 'Transformers' star is set to helm "The Buddy Games" for WWE Studios, reported deadline.com.

Duhamel, who confirmed the project during WWE Raw here on Monday, will also star in the film alongside wrestling star Seamus and actor Nick Swardson. He is also involved in developing the screenplay for the movie.

"The Buddy Games" are a wild assortment of absurd physical and mental challenges. In the process, they heal old wounds, right past wrong and figure out the true meaning of friendship or die trying.

The film is set to begin shooting in August in Vancouver.
