The Big Show returns to the big screen.
AEW’s Paul Wight appears in a trailer for the upcoming “Marcus” movie. Written and directed by JR Poli and released by Gravitas Ventures, the film is based on Poli’s 2018 short film of the same name.
The description of the film is as follows:
“Marcus has a good past and an unstable present. Unexpected news brings a new opportunity. He leaves his life behind and begins to find purpose and forgiveness. “But Marcus will have to face the consequences of his past and overcome the biggest obstacle of all: himself.”
White is set to play Gus Hoffman, according to the movie’s IMDB page.
The film marks Wight’s first film role since leaving the WWE in February 2021, although “Marcus” was shot in 2020. Wight has since been a color commentator on AEW programming and last fought for AEW March of this year, defeating Austin Green. Wight recently said that his career in the ring is not over, despite the fact that he underwent his second hip replacement surgery in December. However, the 50-year-old wrestler does not see himself holding any championship. “Maybe if it works and there is a newer talent that I can help bring with me, like a team championship, maybe. “I have done five nights a week for decades, I have dedicated time.”
Wight also recently appeared in WWE programming. The former WWE champion was one of three AEW talents to pay tribute to John Cena during the celebration of Cena’s 20-year career on Monday. Bryan Danielson and Chris Jericho also sent greetings to Cena.
