Becky Lynch to join Miz in the cast of ‘The Marine 6: Close Quarters’ from WWE Studios

We shared yesterday the news that Miz’s booking on Raw this week was designed to give him time off to film the next Marine movie from WWE Studios. An official announcement today (Nov. 22) provides a lot more detail on the sixth flick in the franchise, and informs us some events on SmackDown were also designed to provide a storyline exit for one of his co-stars... Becky Lynch!


Starring WWE Superstars The Miz® and Becky Lynch™, and WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels®

Burbank, Calif. (November 22, 2017) – WWE Studios and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA) today announced that the two studios will partner again to release the upcoming action film The Marine 6: Close Quarters, directed by James Nunn (The Marine 5: Battleground, Eliminators). The film will feature WWE Superstars The Miz and Becky Lynch, and WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, and is set to begin production on Monday, November 27 in London.

When Jake Carter (The Miz) and fellow Marine Luke Trapper (Shawn Michaels) stumble upon a kidnapped girl being held prisoner by a dangerous gang of international criminals, they find themselves in the crosshairs as they try to save the girl and bring her kidnappers to justice.

The Marine series continues to deliver action-packed entertainment to our fans, and we are excited to partner again with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions and director James Nunn to bring The Marine 6: Close Quarters to a global audience” said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. “The motion picture debut of the talented Becky Lynch and the addition of Shawn Michaels to the series, alongside The Miz, is sure to bring the excitement and action to the next level.”

The film is written by Craig Walendziak.

Hopefully Lynch isn’t playing “kidnapped girl” - The Lasskicker ain’t no damsel in distress. Maybe she’s leading the “dangerous gang of international criminals”?

Either way, this news, especially the bit about filming in London, helps explain her beatdown at the hands of Ruby Riot, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan last night.

And seeing as Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel ended up working with Miz on WWE television after filming The Marine 5... well, let your imagination run away with you, Cagesiders.
