- As noted before, WWE has promoted Michael Luisi to the head of WWE Studios. The Los Angeles time wrote about Luisi and WWE’s films division yesterday and revealed some changes that will be coming.
The LA Times reports that Luisi is looking to increase WWE Studios’ output to 6 to 8 films per year. Besides creating movies, Luisi also plans to actively seek to acquire movies for WWE to release. Luisi is headed to the upcoming Toronto Film Festival to look for movies that WWE Studios can buy.
Luisi also says that from here on out, WWE Studios films won’t always feature a Superstar in the lead role. He said, “The creative will dictate whether or not it makes sense to have WWE talent in the movie.”
Finally, under Luisi’s direction, WWE will look to release their movies through other platforms besides movie theaters. “Everyone is well aware that the landscape is shifting, we’re looking to create content that would potentially bypass the theatrical window,” Luisi said.
