WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced Friday that Randy Orton will star in 12 Rounds: Reloaded. The direct-to-homevideo title is the sequel to the film John Cena starred in 2009.

According to WWE.com, “Orton will portray an Emergency Medical Technician who finds himself caught in a deadly 12-round game of cat and mouse with a vengeful man tied to the paramedic’s past. With little time to spare and his wife’s life hanging in the balance, the EMT must figure out why he’s been chosen to be the pawn in this maniac’s game before it’s too late.”

12 Rounds: Reloaded was written by David Benullo and will be directed by Roel Reiné (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption and Death Race: Inferno). Production will begin September 26 in Vancouver. This is WWE Studios’ second film in a three-picture agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

In late March, Orton was set to star in The Marine: Homefront for WWE Studios and Fox, but was replaced by The Miz after the companies were reminded of Orton’s dishonorable discharge from the Marines. Orton has also appeared in WWE Studios’ That’s What I Am.

    OK, From my understanding Orton was suspended for smoking pot. While i do not condone it I would be willing to bet that half the people on here bitching about him and making fun of him are smoking a joint as they type.

    Movie may be good, Nobody knows until it comes out and you watch it.

  • Shattaj

    Ahem,he already finished shooting for the movie during his suspension period,get it?

  • KingAlbert

    Randy orton is a true champion, miles above most in wwe currently, i told you maggots he would get rewarded for his latest suspension. Another cold hard 2 million in Randys pocket.

  • SYM

    Fake SYM is ant everyone. I apologise for wat hes doing, Ima get his Monkey ass back.

  • SYM

    will you stupid IWC people STFU? orton is a born star. i can easily see him surpassing the rock in hollywood. he has the look and the talent. this will blow cenas film out of the pond.

  • yofits

    this is GOOD NEWS as it means Randall Boreton will be gone from WWE again.

  • Jon-Jon

    Maybe this is punishment for his suspension?

  • chronoxiong

    But he just came back from his suspension. How’s that gonna work? Is he going to spend his days off filming like how Cena does it?

  • Jim

    Its the same damn storylines in all their movies. Someone’s kidnapped and they have to rescue them. Then they wonder why the films division is losing them money.

  • Robinson

    Why cant somebody’s mom or little sister be kidnapped why is it always a gf or wife?! All wwe movies are all the same.

  • SYM

    What the Fuck! I asked for 12 Rounds Sequel starring Amazing Red but I get 12 Pounds Starring Orton’s crack addiction.

  • Bill

    Why would a maniac go after a paramedic? There’s really no logic in that, unless there’s something we don’t know yet about the movie.

  • Jake

    Can we just make it 6 rounds, have Orton punt the guy and save me an hour and a half
