WWE Studios looking to make a lot of movies

Published Add your comment

WWE Studios have really upped their output in the last couple of years but, according to reports, there could be an even greater increase in films produced by the company in the not too distant future.

The Los Angeles-based subsidiary was set up in 2002 and entered into the market that year with the release of The Scorpion King - part of The Mummy franchise. It starred The Rock, a WWE superstar at the time, and launched his Hollywood career. Nobody on the WWE roster has been able to match the success of The Rock in the movies, but this could be set to change.

WrestlingInc report that WWE Studios are looking to release 8-10 moves this year alone, with five having already been launched. One of these was Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery, which came out on Warner Home Video last month, and saw John Cena and Triple H voice their own characters.

Scheduled for release later in 2014 will be Incarnate; a movie starring Golden Globe nominated actor Aaron Eckhart and former world’s strongest man Mark Henry.

This planned increase in output from WWE studios was prompted by the unexpected success of The Call last year, which made over $68 million at the box office with a production budget of $13 million.
