Fresh off having wrapped on the Soskas Sisters’ take on David Cronenberg’s Rabid, it’s been revealed that CM Punk is headlining Travis Stevens’ Girl on the Third Floor.
Courtesy of Deadline, Punk has landed the lead role in the directing debut from Big Ass Spider!, Cheap Thrills, and We Are Still Here producer Stevens. The Second City Saint – real name Phil Brooks – is playing failing husband Don Koch in the film. Early word on the role and the film has Don looking to fix up an old house in an attempt to make up for his past mistakes. Elsewhere, his wife Liz is pregnant and concerned about her husband’s plans to renovate this house… as the tearing down of the house begins to tear Don apart as well.
Punk is a huge favourite of many, having become one of the biggest names in modern pro wrestling history before transitioning to MMA and the UFC. And now, he continues to expand his resume with efforts such as Ultimate Beastmaster and the aforementioned Rabid.
Girl on the Third Floor has reportedly wrapped already, and Banshee’s Trieste Dunn and We Are Still Here’s Elissa Dowling join CM Punk in the picture.
