The WWE Studios franchise The Marine will live to see its sixth movie, starring The Miz, Becky Lynch, and Shawn Michaels.
The announcement of the sixth movie, titled The Marine 6: Close Quarters, was done today by WWE Studios and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions, It will be directed by James Nunn and by Craig Walendziak.
The synopsis for the next installment reads, “When Jake Carter (The Miz) and fellow Marine Luke Trapper (Shawn Michaels) stumble upon a kidnapped girl being held prisoner by a dangerous gang of international criminals, they find themselves in the crosshairs as they try to save the girl and bring her kidnappers to justice.”
Production will start on Monday, November 27, in London, England which might explain why The Miz dropped the Intercontinental title this week to Roman Reigns. Becky Lynch was also viciously attacked on Smackdown.
This is the fourth Marine movie which The Miz will be starring in. The first one was headlined by John Cena while Ted DiBiase Jr starred in the second one. All three played different characters, with The Miz reprising his role of Sgt. Jake Carter.
“The Marine series continues to deliver action-packed entertainment to our fans, and we are excited to partner again with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions and director James Nunn to bring ‘The Marine 6: Close Quarters’ to a global audience,” said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. “The motion picture debut of the talented Becky Lynch and the addition of Shawn Michaels to the series, alongside The Miz, is sure to bring the excitement and action to the next level.”
