YouTuber turned pro boxer Jake Paul will break new territory in his career.

“The Problem Child” is set to play his first acting role in an upcoming combat sports feature film.

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Mandalay Pictures and Wonder Street on my first feature film project,” Paul said in a Tuesday press release. “Both companies have proven track records of producing high-quality content that resonates with audiences, and I couldn’t be more excited to work with such talented and experienced teams.”

Paul’s role is reportedly of a young fighter from a small town rising to the top of the sport. More information surrounding the movie project is expected to be revealed in the next few months.
