– There are incorrect reports going around this morning that say Deadline.com confirmed John Cena for The Marine 3: Homefront in an article back in February. Deadline never stated this and as of this writing, Cena has not been confirmed for the next movie in The Marine series.
PWInsider reports that 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. At the time, the idea behind Cena returning to the series was that it would be similar to Bruce Willis and the Die Hard franchise.
At last word, Cena was not scheduled for The Marine 3: Homefront. Names tossed around for the starring role have included CM Punk, JTG, Cody Rhodes and a few others. WWE officials have reportedly decided on the Superstar who will appear in the movie but have been holding off on the announcement. Now that it appears Cena will be taking some time off from WWE, fan speculation is that filming The Marine 3 may fit into Cena’s plans. Filming for the movie won’t begin until June.
