Since parting ways with WWE, Dean Ambrose has certainly kept himself busy.
As noted, Ambrose immediately surfaced on social media, bringing back his Jon Moxley character and releasing a teaser video that definitely got the attention of the Internet Wrestling Community.
In an update on the former member of The Shield, Deadline.com is reporting that Moxley has joined the cast of the upcoming major motion picture, “Cagefighter.”
Featured below are some details on the MMA-based film from the aforementioned Deadline article by Andreas Wiseman (@AndreasWiseman):
Currently in pre-production, the film tells the story of a lauded MMA champion who unexpectedly loses a heavily promoted match to a professional wrestling star making his crossover debut in the MMA fighting world. Humiliated by the defeat, he must fight his way back to the top and earn his place for a rematch.
Starring are real-life MMA fighter and actor Josh Herdman (Harry Potter) alongside Michael Jai White (Universal Soldier), Gina Gershon (Face/Off), Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman), and Jason Maza (Brotherhood). MMA stars set to feature include Anderson Silva, Georges St Pierre and Alexander Gustafsson.
Jesse Quinones (Calloused Hands) directs; producers are Lorianne Hall (Shoplifters of The World) with Trilight Entertainment’s Shayne Putzlocher (Dead Shack) and Anamorphic Media’s Sara Shaak (Cold Brook). Executive producer is former WWE star Jay “Christian” Reso. Kaleidoscope handles sales.
