WWE Studios announce ‘The Marine 6: Close Quarters’

by Phil Wheat


WWE Studios and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions have announced that the two studios will partner again to release the latest film in the long-running WWE superstar-led The Marine franchise, The Marine 6: Close Quarters – which will once again star The Miz as Marine Jake Carter, this time teaming up with bad-ass wrestler and former Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels(!)

Set to begin production on Monday November 27th in London, the film is written by Craig Walendziak (Contracted: Phase II) and directed by James Nunn – who helmed the previous film in the series along with the awesome Scott Adkins actioner Eliminators, Green Street 3: Never Back Down (which also starred Adkins) and the critically acclaimed horror/thriller Tower Block. All of which make Nunn four-for-four when it comes to superb genre flicks… Add Becky Lynch to that equation – in whatever role she is appearing in this franchise entry (and I say this with no disrespect to The Miz and Shawn Michaels), makes The Marine 6: Close Quarters a MUST-SEE!

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.

Says Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios:

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. 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.

Now if only I could find a way to sneak on to set and see these guys in action for myself… Heaven!
