A new horror film starring former WWE Champion turned UFC Star CM Punk will premiere at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival.
Punk, who left WWE five years ago, will have a main role in The Girl on the Third Floor, which will feature as part of the festival's Midnighter series.
The festival gave the following synopsis:
"At the heart of the film is Don Koch (CM Punk), a man who is failing as a husband. For years he has skated by on charm and charisma, until it nearly landed him in jail. He now views fixing up an old house as a chance to make up for past mistakes. Meanwhile, his wife, Liz Koch, is concerned about the renovation timeline as they have a baby on the way. With all this pressure it’s no wonder Don responds to the flirtations of an attractive stranger. As Don tears the house apart, it begins to tear him apart as well, revealing the rot behind the drywall."
Punk joined the WWE in 2006, and left in January 2014, walking out after disagreements with the company.
The Second City Savior has since turned his attention to UFC, where he is 0-2.
The SXSW Film Festival will take place from March 8-17.
