Eve Torres to Appear in ‘Scorpion King 4′

Eve Torres is following in The Rock‘s footsteps, so to speak.

It has been revealed that the former WWE Diva will appear in The Scorpion King 4, which just wrapped principal photography in Romania.

The Scorpion King was one of the first roles The Rock took on in Hollywood, first in The Mummy Returns and later in a spinoff.

The film’s synopsis says, “The deposed warrior king Mathayus embarks on his most dangerous assignment ever as he attempts to bring lasting peace to his troubled land. When he is betrayed by a trusted friend, Mathayus must marshal all his strength and cunning to outwit a formidable opponent who will stop at nothing to destroy him in an epic battle to the death.”

There’s no word yet on the role Eve will play, but joining her in the film will be a number of professional fighters, Game of Thrones‘s Esmé Bianco, Van Helsing‘s Will Kemp and Rocky Horror Picture Show‘s Barry Bostwick.
