CM Punk Set For First Feature Film Starring Role in Horror Flick
Former WWE superstar and UFC fighter CM Punk is set for his first starring film role, as reported by Deadline.
Punk, who is coming off the back of his second consecutive loss in mixed martial arts against Mike Jackson, hinted during a recent appearance on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show that he may be leaning more towards the entertainment side of things after what happened at UFC 225.
The film in question, which is a horror film called Girl on the Third Floor, has just wrapped production in his home state of Illinois. Punk, real name Phil Brooks, always seemed interested in the idea of acting, dating back to when he had a role taken away from him by WWE in favour of Randy Orton – which is a story he told on the now infamous Colt Cabana podcast.
Punk also recently did some work for Ultimate Beastmaster, which is a show that has been airing on Netflix.
