Former WWE stars CM Punk and AJ Lee, who were married last year, are co-starring in an upcoming action/horror film called Hellstorm. Here’s some more info from mbnnewsvideoweb.com:
After the collapse of the world’s financial system and a devastating world war, a group of mismatched survivors are forced to band together and battle a variety of unexplainable and horrific beasts that descend on their tiny makeshift community.
Hellstorm stars AJ Brooks, the internationally known, longest running WWE Divas Champion of all time. Brooks will appear along with her husband, Phil Brooks, also known as CM PUNK, the longest reigning WWE Champion of this decade and a renowned athlete, who is currently training for his debut as a UFC fighter. The two will appear together in this unprecedented, action-horror motion picture event where will they co-star together for the very first time.
The film also stars Mat Fraser (American Horror Story), Colleen Camp (American Hustle), Selene Luna (My Bloody Valentine), Kate Hodge (Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III), Brian Goff (BorderCross) and is written and directed by William Butler (Madhouse). Nick Byassee (Stay Cool) is set as Producer and Emmy Award Winner Jared Safier (The Bay) is the Executive Producer.
Hellstorm is also Co-Produced By Robert Kurtzman, the Creator / Executive Producer of “From Dusk Till Dawn” and starts shooting in Ohio Mid November. Image Entertainment will handle Domestic Distribution and Highland Film Group is handling International Sales. The film is brought to you by Transition Entertainment in association with Safier Entertainment and Initiate Productions.
Just to correct that post they did, AJ no longer has the longest Divas Title reign ever since Nikki Bella beat it on Raw.
I’m not sure who came up with the title “Hellstorm” but it reminds me of that Seinfeld episode with the movie Deathblow just because of how cheesy the title is. Also, the synopsis of the film makes it sound like one of my favorite TV shows ever, Lost. It’s not exactly the same as that, but it’s similar.
I wish them both all the best with it and I think they’re both pretty good actors. I also think both are better wrestlers than they are actors, especially CM Punk, but they have moved on from it and fans should accept it.
There’s still no date for Punk’s first fight with UFC. It won’t be in 2015 and there’s not even a rumored date for 2016 at this point.
