I was watching "12 Rounds" recently, and while fast forwarding through a preview or two, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the logo for THE MARINE 2!!!
I was in the minority in enjoying the first Marine (As I usually am), but did because of the insane action, great stunt-work, and throwback style. 12 Rounds is very similar (But better), so of course I liked it as well.
The Marine 2 will star Ted Dibiase Jr. (Pictured above), son of well known professional wrestler, Ted Dibiase Sr. The film is under the authority of WWE Films, like the first, and there is a small cast list up now @ IMDB.
Kelly Carlson is currently not listed in the cast, unfortunately, and it is not known what role Dibiase will be portraying at this time (i.e., John Triton, or a new marine). The film is expected to be released late this year on both Blu-ray and DVD.
We will of course continue to follow this story, and mark the release date on our schedule when it is confirmed. Needless to say, I'm excited for the sequel, as the first was an excellent full throttle action movie.
EDIT: THE MARINE 2 HAS A DVD/BLU RELEASE DATE OF DECEMBER 29TH
