The former Bray Wyatt is working on a feature film with Callosum Studios, according to a report.
Windham Rotunda's first post-WWE project was announced in an exclusive report by Metro.co.UK. Callosum's owner and special makeup effects artist Jason Baker says that he and Rotunda are collaborating on a movie.
"It’s a feature film and it’s something really new and different. I’d say probably the best way to describe it is Ichi the Killer meets Xanadu," Baker said.
Baker posted a photo on a Warner Bros. studio lot with Rotunda late last month, and says that the film project sprung out of some Hollywood meetings. Fightful Select was first to report on those meetings.
"We had some meetings out there and things happened and things got moving forward, and now we’re going and shooting this feature film with him and the end of the month," Baker said. "He’s a phenomenal collaborator, he’s become a really good friend, and we’re actually.. We’re starting a film at the end of the month."
Baker is the artist who created Rotunda's Firefly Fun House puppets, but says not to expect any of that in the new film.
"We’re not using any of that... We’re going in a completely different direction, a whole new thing," he said. "It should be fun. Hopefully fans of horror and fans of Windham like it."
Baker also states that filming for the movie begins shortly. "Two weeks to go, we’re filming in Tennessee," he said.
Rotunda's WWE non-compete clause expired on October 30 after he was released by WWE on July 31.
