Earlier this week, Variety reported that AEW star and FOZZY frontman Chris Jericho is teaming with author and filmmaker Jay Bonansigna for a new psychological thriller called “Self Storage.” The film is based on Bonansigna’s book of the same name and tells the story of a heroin-addicted father and his son who accidentally lock themselves inside a self-storage unit. 

Variety reports: “Surviving will depend on a battle with demons both real and manufactured by drug withdrawal.”

“The cat is out of the bag!” Jericho wrote via social media. “So excited to share that @jbonansinga and I are teaming up for the psychological thriller, ‘Self Storage.’ The film will be executive produced by my ‘Babyface Assassin Productions’ alongside Bonansinga and Jeff Siegel for Delirium Tremens, and Jason Cherubini for Dawn’s Light. Besides executive producing, I will be appearing in a key supporting role!”

The lead character will be played by Lew Temple (“The Walking Dead,” “The Devil’s Rejects”). 

According to Variety: “‘Self Storage’ is the second recent adaptation of a Bonansinga novel, following Lionsgate’s ‘The Killer’s Game,’ based on his 1997 novel, directed by J.J. Perry and starring Dave Bautista. A prolific and bestselling author, Bonansinga is known for co-writing several novels based on ‘The Walking Dead’ comics series, with Robert Kirkman of Skybound Entertainment; and book series ‘Stan Lee’s The Devil’s Quintet,’ a collaboration with late comic book legend Stan Lee.”

Jericho recently starred in “Country Hearts Christmas” and “Terrifier 2.” He’s also previously made cameos in “Sharknado 3” and “Macgruber.”
