Source: Deadline.comDeadline.com is reporting that WWE Studios and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have come to terms on a new deal that will yield 3 straight-to-DVD titles - including another Marine film.
The Marine: Homefront will be the third installment of WWE's Marine franchise. The original Marine movie from 2006 generated over $18 million in revenue and was the most successful WWE Studios project by far. Ted DiBiase starred in the straight-to-DVD sequel. Deadline.com originally reported that John Cena would be starring in the new Marine movie, but has since updated their article and removed the part about Cena starring.
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will handle worldwide distribution for the 3 movies via Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download and WWE will use their juggernaut promotional machine to maximize exposure.
"WWE Studios will continue to expand its film offerings to appeal to a wide range of movie fans in 2012 and 2013," said WWE Studios President, Michael Luisi. "We look forward to building upon our relationship with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment to present movies that bring action, adventure and humor to audiences all over the globe."
No word yet on the other two movies, but one of them is expected to star CM Punk.
