Chris Jericho is set to star in a wrestling-themed horror movie. 

Deadline reported that Jericho will play the lead role in the upcoming horror flick 'Dark Match' alongside Steven Ogg, Ayisha Issa, Sara Canning, Michael Eklund, and Jonathan Cherry. 

Filming recently wrapped in Edmonton, Canada. The movie will see an independent wrestling promotion accept a high-paying offer to run a show in a backwoods town. While there, they will discover that the community is run by a mysterious cult leader who has some devious plans for their match. 

Jericho is also an executive producer on the movie. 'Dark Match' was written and directed by Lowell Dean of 'Wolfcop' fame. 

Dean said: "It's been a blast filming in Edmonton and working every day with such a talented cast and crew. I'm excited for the opportunity to work with Dept.9 Studios and for the producer's support in bringing 'Dark Match' to life."

Jericho has appeared in movies in the past including Sharknado 3, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, and Terrifier 2.
