First Look At CM Punk In The Girl on the Third Floor

From WWE Superstar to UFC fighter to movie star, check out a first look at CM Punk in The Girl on the Third Floor.

The new haunted house horror movie from production company Queensbury Pictures recently completed filming and stars former WWE Superstar Phil Brooks (a.k.a. CM Punk). reports that in The Girl on the Third Floor, CM Punk plays Don Koch, a man who is failing as a husband. For years he has skated by on charm and charisma, until it nearly landed him in jail. He now views fixing up an old house as a chance to make up for past mistakes. Meanwhile, his wife, Liz Koch, is concerned about the renovation timeline as they have a baby on the way. With all this pressure it’s no wonder Don responds to the flirtations of an attractive stranger. As Don tears the house apart (as seen in the image below) it begins to tear him apart as well, revealing the rot behind the drywall.

“I’m thrilled to have had the opportunity to take on the lead role in Girl on the Third Floor,” CM Punk said in a statement. “I’m a longtime personal fan of genre films and this project was an absolute natural fit for me.”

CM Punk also had a recurring role in the IFC series Maron and is also appearing in the Soska sisters’ upcoming remake of David Cronenberg’s Rabid.

The Girl on the Third Floor is written and directed by Travis Stevens and also stars Trieste Dunn, Elissa Dowling and Sarah Brooks, with producers including Greg Newman, Giles Edwards, Nicola Goelzhauser, and Stevens. Dan Martin (High Rise, Lord of Chaos) is creating the film’s special make-up and creature effects. 

“Phil Brooks has proven his abilities as an actor outside of the ring and is a natural fit for the lead,” said Newman. “His range and performance will surely delight and surprise those who know him best from his athletic career. We’re thrilled and honored to have him on the project.”
