Former WWE Superstar Eva Marie was a guest on "Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz." During the interview, The former "Total Divas" star spoke about filming her first lead role in an action film.

"I had filmed my first lead action, it's called 'Phoenix' and hopefully it — if everything goes well in the editing room it will drop this year," said Marie. "I don't know where exactly it will live in the sense of like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, but that is a little something that I have been up to for sure."


According to IMDb, one of Marie's first films was the 2017 thriller "Inconceivable," which starred Nicholas Cage and Gina Gershon. Three years later, in 2020, Marie starred in the action film, "Hard Kill" with Bruce Willis and Jesse Metcalfe.
