You may recall the weird news that pundit Arianna Huffington posted that she appeared in a top-secret futuristic sci-fi war movie being shot by the Wachowski brothers (of Matrix fame). Well, now comes news that former Minnesota governor and Predator star Jesse Ventura may have shot something as well.

Slashfilm reports:

Appearing on Tuesday's episode of the Howard Stern Show on Sirius/XM Satellite radio, the professional wrestler turned actor turned governor Jesse Ventura dropped word that he just got done filming a movie for the Wachowskis. When asked if he missed acting and would ever consider returning to the big screen, Ventura dropped the bomb shell:

"I just did one with the Wachowski brothers..."

Ventura explained that he didn't know where this film is gonna end up, to which Stern asked "What is the film?" Ventura responded: "I don't know..." Ventura revealed that they didn't have a script, and the whole thing was done ad-lib/improv.

"Wait til you hear what they did. They brought me, and they brought Arianna Huffington in after me. Arianna was there, and they had her looking like cleopatra. What they did ... Do you remember what John Travolta looked like in that horrible film Battlefield Earth? They put multicolored dreadlocks on me all the way to here. They gave me this crazy beard that was hanging down pointed, looked like Travolta, right? And they put a third eye in the middle of my forehead. Because what this is, is this is a hundred years in the future, and they wanted me to talk about the current war in Iraq and how I felt about it. And so I got to vent, looking like this maniac in this whole outfit."

Ventura said he didn't know what he was doing or what the movie is beyond that.

Weird, huh? Stay tuned for more ...
