‘Jingle All the Way 2’ and ‘The Marine 4’ to start production from WWE Studios and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

STAMFORD, Conn./LOS ANGELES – WWE Studios and 20th 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 20th Century Fox including the theatrical releases of “The Marine” and “12 Rounds.” Shooting this April, “The Marine 4” will star WWE Superstar The Miz, 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.

20th 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 longstanding relationship with 20th Century Fox with both ‘The Marine 4’ and ‘Jingle All the Way 2,’” said Michael Luisi, President, 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.’”

“WWE Studios remains a valuable partner and we are pleased to continue to bring these films to their legions of fans across the globe,” said Mike Dunn, President, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. “We’re excited to be launching the fourth installment of the tremendously successful franchise, ‘The Marine,’ and to have Larry the Cable Guy on board for ‘Jingle All the Way 2,’ a perfect star for our first family comedy with WWE Studios.”
