CM Punk's acting resume continues to grow.
According to a report from Deadline, Punk will star in an upcoming horror film titled "Jakob’s Wife," the latest film from long-time horror actress Barbara Crampton.
Per the report, the project comes from production and sales outfit AMP International, which recently premiered its latest movie, Romola Garai’s "Amulet," in Sundance’s Midnight program. "Jakob’s Wife" was developed by AMP and Crampton from a script by Mark Steensland, Kathy Charles and Travis Stevens. The story, a supernatural horror, follows a woman in her late 50s who, after a chance encounter with ‘The Master’, discovers a new sense of power, a change that comes with a heavy toll.
Punk also starred in the film, "Girl On The Third Floor" and "Jakob's Wife" is being directed by Travis Stevens, who filmed the same role on "Girl On The Third Floor." Other people who will star in "Jakob's Wife" are Larry Fessenden, Bonnie Aarons, Robert Rusler, Sarah Lind, Mark Kelly, Nyisha Bell and more
