WWE star Luke Harper has landed a role in the horror movie "Mohawk," TheWrap.com reports.

Directed by Ted Geoghegan, the horror action film also stars"Hemlock Grove" actress Kaniehtiio Horn and "Twilight's" Justin Rain.

The film follows Horn's character, a young female Mohawk, who is on the run from renegade soldiers after someone in her tribe sets their camp on fire.

"Mohawk is hard-hitting action-horror that subverts traditional genre tropes while delivering a timeless tale of good versus evil," Geoghegan said. "We look to deliver a horrifying home invasion film where the home is North America itself."

There's no word yet on what Harper's role will be. He has been on hiatus from wrestling since suffereing an injury in March.

The film also features WWE's Jon Huber and actors Noah Segan, Ian Colletti, Robert Longstreet, Sheri Foster, Ezra Buzzington and Andrew Sensenig.
