WWE Announces 'Jingle All the Way 2' and 'The Marine 4'

'Marine 3' Superstar The Miz is returning, while Larry the Cable Guy takes over for Arnold Schwarzenegger on the holiday comedy.
WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment today announced the next two films that will begin production as part of their continued collaboration. This March, cameras will start rolling on Jingle All the Way 2, the sequel to the 1996 hit comedy Jingle All the Way. Starring Larry The Cable Guy (Tooth Fairy 2, Cars) and featuring WWE Superstar Santino Marella, the film is directed by Alex Zamm (Tooth Fairy 2, Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts) and will release this 2014 holiday season.

Also announced is the fourth installment of The Marine franchise, the eighth collaboration between WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox including the theatrical releases of The Marine and 12 Rounds. Shooting this April, The Marine 4 will star WWE Superstar Mike "The Miz" Mizanin, who will be the first WWE Superstar to reprise his role in The Marine franchise, and will also feature Summer Rae, 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.

Here's what WWE Studios president Michael Luisi had to say in a statement about these upcoming sequels.

"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. 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."
