The Marine: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment is making its first foray into the feature film ring with a project called The Marine.

John Cena, the professional wrestler known to fans of WWE's weekly UPN series "Smackdown!" as the self-proclaimed "Doctor of Thuganomics," will take the title role. Cena is in negotiations to star as an injured Marine who returns from the war to find his girlfriend inadvertently caught up in a kidnapping.

The Marine will be produced through WWE Films, the Beverly Hills-based film division of WWE that was launched in 2002.
