There has been a lot of talk recently about a new movie being produced by Imperia Entertainment entitled “Never Submit.” Much of the PR surrounding the movie includes the prospect of many Ultimate Fighting Championship fighters being featured in the fictional movie.

But this past week Julio Heller, representing Wanderlei Silva and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, was seen meeting with James Hergott, the director of Never Submit. So it appears that the two Chute Boxe and Pride FC fighters could be making an appearance in the movie.

MMAWeekly contacted Cindy Ortiz, one of the producers of the movie, who confirmed the meeting, “There was a meeting in L.A. with Shogun and Wanderlei’s manager regarding their involvement in the film, but I can’t really comment any further than that.”

According to their press releases, Never Submit is to be a fictional story about mixed martial arts fighters set in a tournament style competition portrayed in a realistic and positive light.
