Bray Wyatt Confirmed As Working On Hollywood Movie Project
His first post-WWE project
The former Bray Wyatt is set to make his move into the world of movies after it was confirmed he would be collaborating on a film project starting later this month.
Reports emerged in October that Windham Rotunda had been fielding enquiries about a number of Hollywood projects, following his release from WWE in July, after an image of him outside a building bearing the Warner Brothers logo emerged on social media.
Callosum Studios owner and special makeup effects artist Jason Baker, who worked with Rotunda on a lot of the design for his 'Fiend' character in WWE, has now revealed the duo will be collaborating on a film project.
Speaking to Alistair McGeorge of Metro, Baker said of Wyatt: "He’s a phenomenal collaborator, he’s become a really good friend, and we’re actually – you’re the first person that we’re publicly telling about. We’re starting a film at the end of the month. Two weeks to go, we’re filming in Tennessee.
"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. 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."
When asked if the movie would involve the Wyatt's 'Fiend' character, Baker answered: "We’re not using any of that – we’re going in a completely different direction, a whole new thing. It should be fun. Hopefully fans of horror and fans of Windham like it!"
