Dustin Runnels is most famous by his World Wrestling Entertainment persona Goldust, a sexually ambiguous, Hollywood-obsessed wrestler whose gold-painted appearance is said to have been modeled on the Oscar statue. Now it appears the movie-quoting grappler is hoping to one day quote one of his own movies.
The other day Goldust/Runnels tossed out the unexpected news on his Twitter account (@WWEGoldust) that he is going to make and star in a horror movie:
“Next thanksgiving I will be shooting my first movie….the fire witch…that I will be directing and producing…and will be in it. Just in the starting stages…..but will let you know more when more is known. It won’t be a wrestling movie….it is a horror film. It will be a low budget film and my very first…..lots of work ahead.”
That’s all he’s had to say so far about The Fire Witch, which may or may not be produced by WWE Films. More details whenever Goldust tweets them.
Speaking of WWE and horror movies, given how cheap it is to produce a slasher movie, am I alone in finding it hard to believe WWE Films has never produced a straight-to-DVD follow-up to See No Evil considering the Kane-starring slasher flick was the studio’s most profitable movie to date? Oh, right, I forgot they’re strictly in the family film business now. Yeah, because flying around in a pink tutu did so much for The Rock’s career this year.
