The streaming platform has confirmed details of its upcoming Halloween lineup for October, and it includes a very exciting project involving the legendary Dead Man and the trio of Big E, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston.
According to Bloody Disgusting, the synopsis reads: ‘The Undertaker has set a trap for the decorated tag team The New Day at his mansion.
‘What they don’t know: The Undertaker’s mansion is an extreme Haunted House, packed to the brim with supernatural challenges.
‘It’s up to viewers to decide the fate of these three poor souls trying to survive the wrath of The Undertaker.’
The movie – which could work in a similar way to Black Mirror special Bandersnatch – is set to premiere on October 5, just in time for Halloween.
Even ‘Taker himself – who officially retired at Survivor Series last year, months after bowing out in a cinematic Boneyard Match against AJ Styles – has responded to the news, as he tweeted: ‘Be careful whose door you knock on… never know who is on the other side!’
WWE and Netflix announced a partnership two years ago to work on projects including feature films together, with the first being family movie The Main Event in April 2020.
The same month, The Big Show Show also launched with former world champion The Big Show playing a fictionalised version of himself in the sitcom.
Meanwhile, WWE president Nick Khan previously announced Netflix are working on a big budget, multi-part documentary about boss Vince McMahon.
Khan described the move as a ‘groundbreaking deal’, with Bill Simmons – The Ringer founder and co-creator of ESPN’s 30 for 30 docu-series – serving as executive producer.
He held the same position for HBO’s 2018 Andre the Giant documentary.
As reported by Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer, the new McMahon series will be ‘one of the highest budgeted docs in Netflix history’.
Filmmaker Chris Smith – who directed Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened – will be at the helm for the Vince piece.
