Bray Wyatt is going Hollywood.
On October 28, Fightful Select reported, "Bray Wyatt has been in Los Angeles of late fielding inquiries regarding Hollywood projects." The report came after a photo placed Wyatt outside of a building with a Warner Brothers logo.
Speaking to Alistair McGeorge of Metro, Callosum Studios owner and special makeup effects artist Jason Baker confirmed a movie project with 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," he said.
When asked if the movie would involve the return of "The Fiend," Baker replied, "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!"

The Fightful Select report noted, "WWE sources indicated to Fightful that this is far from the first interest in Wyatt from Hollywood, noting there was a pitch made that would have involved him participating in a movie before his release."
Wyatt was released by WWE on July 31.
