Dean Ambrose is the latest WWE superstar to branch out into Hollywood, where he will star in a new WWE Studios film called Lockdown.
Ambrose will feel right at home as he could don the SWAT gear once more; where he will be playing a police officer who finds himself trapped inside of his own precinct and hunted by crooked cops who are trying to get rid of incriminating evidence about their corruption, according to Variety.
Even with this role, Ambrose could be back in time for the Night of Champions pay-per-view.

The night after SummerSlam on Monday Night Raw; the WWE Universe voted for a Falls Count Anywhere stipulation between the lunatic fringe and Mr. Money in the Bank; Seth Rollins.
After an interference from Corporate Kane, Seth Rollins hit a massive Curb Stomp on to the back of Ambrose’s head through cinder blocks, effectively writing him off WWE television for a short while as he completes shooting.
The storyline the WWE are running with is that Dean Ambrose refused medical assistance and escaped from the medical team and is now ‘missing’; which means he could reappear on WWE television once he wraps up shooting the film.
However, there have been strong rumours that Dean Ambrose could be back in time for Night of Champions, and may even be able to compete at the event where Brock Lesnar defends his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a SummerSlam rematch against John Cena.
Night of Champions
As of this writing, Dean Ambrose is still being promoted for appearing at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee; the arena where Night of Champions will be taking place.
We already know that every single card is subject to change, sometimes last minute injuries can have an affect but in this case it looks as if Ambrose will be competing on September 21.
The match he is tipped to be competing in isn’t a rematch with Seth Rollins. He is rumoured to be teaming up with former Shield member Roman Reigns – who tried to exact revenge on Seth Rollins in a two on one handicap match on Raw earlier this week – and they will take on the team of the third Shield member Seth Rollins, and Corporate Kane.
Reuniting with Reigns
This is perhaps why we saw Roman Reigns interrupt the eulogy of Dean Ambrose, and it is expected that Roman Reigns will continue his feud with Seth Rollins and Kane in the run up to Night of Champions.
It is being reported that the shooting for Lockdown will conclude on September 20, a day before Night of Champions takes place and if he is able to do so; Ambrose will be free to return to WWE television and may even compete. If not then we can still expect to see Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins clashing, with Dean Ambrose making an appearance in a non-competitive role for that one night.
