Jake Paul’s feature film debut will be in a combat sports drama.

The 26-year-old actor is collaborating with Mandalay Pictures and Wonder Street on the film, in which he will play a small-town kid who achieves global recognition through combat sports.

The plot parallels Jake’s real life, in which he utilized his status as a social media figure to break into professional boxing and co-founded the promotion organization Most Valuable Promotions.

The picture, according to Paul, is “just the beginning of an exciting new chapter in my career.”
