After a great deal of speculation as to who will star in the upcoming WWE Studios movie, The Marine: Homefront, pwinsider.com is now reporting that the lead role will be played by The Miz.
At one point, Cena was considered for the movie with the idea that he would pick back up where the first Marine movie left off. Randy Orton was then attached to the movie, but WWE pulled Orton from the movie due to Orton being kicked out of the Marines when he was younger and the Marines he served with complaining about a “deserter” portraying a Marine in WWE’s movie.
Other wrestlers under consideration for the lead role have included CM Punk, JTG, Cody Rhodes and a few others.
The plot of the film will be a Marine trying to rescue his kidnapped daughter from a terrorist.
Shooting begins in June in Vancouver, British Columbia.
