WWE’s Liv Morgan has joined the cast of The Kill Room, which has Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman as lead.
According to a movieweb.com report, the upcoming thriller movie just enlisted a popular WWE star to join its lead stars marking her feature film debut.
The cast for the project by Yale Entertainment also includes Joe Manganiello (Zack Snyder’s Justice League), Maya Hawke (Stranger Things), Debi Mazar (Entourage), Larry Pine (The French Dispatch), Dree Hemingway (Starlet), and Leah McSweeney (The Real Housewives of New York City).
Nicol Paone directs The Kill Room using a screenplay by Jonathan Jacobson.
The outlet says It’s not yet clear who Morgan will be playing in the movie.
The film centres on hitman Reggie (Manganiello), his boss (Jackson), an art dealer (Thurman) and their money laundering scheme that accidentally turns the hitman into an overnight Avant-Garde sensation, forcing the dealer to play the art world against the underworld. Morgan will play an art purist who bemoans the vapidness of art dealers.
Jordan Yale Levine and Yale Productions partners Jordan Beckerman and Jon Keeyes are producing alongside Anne Clements of Idiot Savant Pictures, Paone, Thurman, Dannielle Thomas, and Jason Weinberg of Untitled Entertainment, as well as William Rosenfeld of Such Content and Bill Kenwright of BK Studios. Executive producers include Robert Kapp, Scott Levenson, Jason Kringstein, Richard Switzer, Ian Niles, Philip W. Shaltz, Bradley Pilz, Michael J. Rothstein, Jesse Korman, Jeffrey Tussi, Michael and Jackie Palkovicz, Vishwas Hannurkar, Jay Burnley, Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor, Nicholas Wirth, and David Gilbery.

Over the years, Morgan has appeared in several WrestleManias and took part in the first-ever all-female Royal Rumble match. She can currently be seen on Monday nights as a part of the company’s Raw brand and has long been one of WWE’s most popular female wrestlers.
