WWE Lionsgate now filming Condemned 2 Desert Prey in New Mexico

WWE Studios and Lionsgate team up again on ‘The Condemned 2: Desert Prey’:

Lionsgate, the premier next-generation global content leader, and WWE Studios have announced the production of “The Condemned 2: Desert Prey,” (working title), which extends the long-standing partnership between the two studios.

Roel Reiné (“Death Race: Inferno,” “The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption”) is set to direct with WWE Superstar Randy Orton attached to star. “The Condemned 2” marks Reiné’s and Orton’s second film together after the successful release of “12 Rounds 2: Reloaded.” Alan McElroy (“The Marine 4: Moving Target”) wrote the script.

“The Condemned 2” follows a former bounty hunter (Orton) who soon finds himself on the run as part of a newly revamped, high-stakes and deadly Condemned tournament.

“We’re thrilled to be continuing ‘The Condemned’ franchise with Randy, Roel and our terrific partners at Lionsgate,” said Michael Luisi, WWE Studios President.

WWE Studios will leverage its extensive multi-platform reach to promote the film.

“We are excited to be reteaming with WWE on “The Condemned 2,” after such a positive experience on the original film,” said Lionsgate Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President Steve Beeks. “The combination of their brand marketing capabilities, creativity and deep lineup of dynamic onscreen talent result in a powerful partnership.”

WWE Studios and Lionsgate previously collaborated on “The Condemned,” “See No Evil” and “Leprechaun: Origins,” as well the just-released “See No Evil 2.” In 2015, the two studios will release the first two installments of their “Action Six-Pack” series: “Vendetta,” directed by The Soska Sisters (“See No Evil 2”) and starring WWE Superstar Paul “Big Show” Wight, as well as “Lockdown,” directed by Stephen Reynolds (“Tomb Raider Ascension”) and starring WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose.

Bradley Buchanan, SVP of Business Affairs, negotiated the deal on behalf of WWE Studios, and Wendy Jaffe, EVP of Business & Legal Affairs, negotiated the deal on behalf of Lionsgate.

Two New Mexico Films Two New Names

Posted by on July 6, 2011 | One comment

John Cena’s sexy silhouette is anxiously awaited in the New Mexico production of WWE Studio’s picture, Blood Brothers.

However the title is Blood Brothers no more. The film about renegade brothers on a mission starring Cena and Amy Smart is now titled Family Reunion.

Though the new title may evoke images of Madea more than mercenary justice the name is apparently a nod to the 2006 WWE RAW series special of the same name.

WWE Studios reports that this and three more completed productions (Inside Out, Bending the Rules and Barricade) will be released in 2011 and 2012.

Another international hottie aka Rachel Nichols worked hard in Northern N. Mex waay back in ’09 on The Loop with a bunch o’ y’all, and et tu Lupe has got a new name.

The film, based on the novel The Loop, is now titled A Bird of the Air, a whimsical story about a man in search of his past, and a woman who lives in the moment, brought together when they pursue the origins of a stray parrot in this “comedic and romantic drama”.

Whether theatrical or DVD release stay tuned for these and many, many, many MORE NM productions!!!
