WWE Studios and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have come to terms on a new deal that will produce three new straight to DVD projects, according to Deadline.com. The Marine 3 will be one of those movies.

John Cena is confirmed to be reprising his role of John Triton in The Marine Homefront. The first Marine movie from 2006 featuring Cena was WWE studios most successful project generating over $18 million in revenue.

“WWE Studios will continue to expand its film offerings to appeal to a wide range of movie fans in 2012 and 2013,” said WWE Studios President, Michael Luisi. “We look forward to building upon our relationship with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment to present movies that bring action, adventure and humor to audiences all over the globe.”

No further details on the other two movies has been released, however expect WWE Champion CM Punk to star in one.

Hmm surprising. I did not think he would do another Marine film after they had Dibiase Jr in the second movie. If the rumors are true this would explain the move to Smackdown where he could work around the film schedule. That is, IF the rumors are true...

No there is a difference. In his time off he is still putting money in the WWE's pocket, not his own. These "crappy" straight-to-DVD releases are a great revenue raiser for WWE for the most part no matter how badly you think they may be. Low budget, straight to DVD sold to a generally dedicated fan base. They always turn a profit, which is why the WWE still make them no matter how bad a lot of us think they are.

I'm closing this and I'll add the news to the OP of the Cena post-match discussion thread seeing as it's relevant.
