WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced plans for a new installment in The Marine franchise with WWE wrestler Mike “The Miz” Mizanin stepping in to the title role for the franchise’s third film – The Marine: Homefront.
The film will be the first starring role for Mizanin and will see directing chores handled by Scott Wiper - who directed The Condemned. Principal photography is scheduled to begin June 11th in Vancouver.
In the film, Mizanin portrays a Marine who is forced to put his skills to the test when a radical militia group kidnaps his rebellious niece.
The unrelenting soldier does whatever is necessary to save his niece and stop a terrorist attack masterminded by the militia leader.
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is attached to handle worldwide distribution on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download. WWE is expected to use its global recognition to help market the film through television, digital/social media and print.
