Mercedes Mone’s Latest Film Role Revealed
Mercedes Mone is doing more work after being part of a film called “The Collective” that recently wrapped up shooting.
Pro wrestling fans know Mercedes Mone (real name Mercedes Varnado) as one of the most successful women wrestlers of the last decade. During her WWE run as Sasha Banks, she won many championships, headlined WrestleMania and garnered a lot of attention when she chose to walk out of WWE in May 2022 due to her frustrations with the creative process.
On January 4th, Mercedes Mone made her debut in NJPW at their Wrestle Kingdom 17 as she confronted KAIRI in the ring to set up a match between them.
It was also reported by Deadline this week that Mercedes has also joined the cast of a film called The Collective.
“In the recently-wrapped film from director Tom DeNucci, a group of righteous assassins called The Collective take aim at a highly sophisticated human trafficking ring backed by a network of untouchable billionaires. With their backs against the wall, The Collective has no choice but to put their most important mission in the hands of rookie assassin, Sam Alexander (Till). What he lacks in experience he makes up for in savvy, grit, and a keen ability to improvise in the most dangerous situations.”
“He is aided on his journey by Hugo (Gibson) and Liam (Johnson), former CIA operatives turned rogue vigilantes. They face off against Daisy (Rose), the cunning general manager of this evil, clandestine organization. Sam must prove to himself, Liam and Hugo that he’s Collective material on this life-or-death, take-no-prisoners mission.”
“Paul Ben-Victor will play Miro Lindell, who serves as auctioneer to a seedy underground cabal of billionaires bidding on human lives. Watching his back at all times is the blade wielding company pit-bull and chief of security, Nikita (Varnado).”
In addition to her WWE run as Sasha Banks, Mercedes also appeared in two episodes of “The Mandalorian,” playing the character Koska Reeves in the Star Wars series.
Mercedes Mone will challenge KAIRI for the IWGP Women’s Championship at NJPW Battle in the Valley on February 18th at the San Jose Civic in San Jose, California.
