WWE and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment today announced the next two films that will begin production as part of their continued collaboration.
Next month, Jingle All The Way 2 will start filming with Santino Marella and Larry the Cable Guy in the sequel to the 1996 comedy. It will be directed by Alex Zamm who did Tooth Fairy 2 and Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts and will released this 2014 holiday season.
In April, production will kick off on the fourth installment of The Marine franchise with The Miz reprising his role. WWE Diva Summer Rae will also be part of the movie, the first WWE Diva to be featured in a WWE Studios production.
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will handle worldwide distribution for the pictures across all formats including Blu-ray, Digital HD and DVD. WWE will utilize its extensive reach of 650 million homes worldwide and more than 256 million social and digital followers to market the release of each film.
“WWE Studios is looking forward to continuing its long standing relationship with 20th Century Fox with both The Marine 4 and Jingle All The Way 2,” said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. “The Miz and Summer Rae will deliver the action and adventure that our audience has come to expect from The Marine franchise, and we are equally excited to bring the comedy of Larry the Cable Guy and WWE Superstar Santino Marella to our fan base with Jingle All The Way 2.
