Their joy soon turns to despair when the family is terrorized by unknown forces and the father will stop at nothing to save them from peril."
Emmy Award winning actor Eric McCormack of Will & Grace fame will star in Barricade. This is the first WWE Studios movie that will not star a WWE Superstar. Actors Conner Dwelly and Ryan Grantham are in talks to play the two kids. Barricade will be directed by Andrew Currie and written by Michaelbrent Collings while WWE's Michael Pavone, David Calloway and Lori Lewis are the producers.
