The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that former WWE World Champion Dave Bautista, who will return to WWE as part of next week's Smackdown 1000, is in negotiations to join the cast of the feature film adaptation and re-imagining of Fantasy Island, playing the role of someone trapped on the Island.

The original series, which debuted in 1977, featured a mystical resort that could bring guests' fantasies to life, sometimes resulting in living nightmares.  The series ran until the early 1980s.  The film version would be produced by Blumhouse and Sony.  

Michael Pena is scheduled to play Mr. Roarke, the owner of the Island, famously played in the original series by Ricardo Montalban.
