Mercedes Varnado — aka Mercedes Moné and fka Sasha Banks — has always believed in her potential as a crossover star, as has her army of fans.

Her role as Kosca Reeves in the Disney + Star Wars show The Mandalorian It was seen as just the beginning President CEO career in Hollywood. Varnado wasn’t the overnight sensation some expected, but she’s got her first film under her belt.

In early December, before we knew she had negotiated her exit from WWE, she tweeted about wrapping up her first movie in Boston.

In response to a fan who posted photos of Varnado at Boston Celtics Stadium, actor and broadcaster Mike Messier revealed that the film was directed by multi-hyphenate filmmaker Tom Dinucci, who previously directed the 2016 revenge thriller. Almost a mercy:
