LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Adam Beach will star opposite Stone Cold Steve Austin in The Stranger, an action vehicle for the wrestling star.

The man-on-the-run story follows an FBI agent (Beach) who is tracking down a material witness (Austin) involved in a top-secret investigation. Erica Cerra, best known from the SyFy series Eureka, will play a psychiatrist involved in the case.

Rob Lieberman is directing the indie film. Shooting begins lensing this week in Vancouver. Beach, a veteran of Law & Order and Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers, will have a featured role on the next season of HBO's Big Love.
