Upcoming WWE movie projects including direct-to-DVD releases of a Big Show comedy, Suckerpunch, sequels to Missing in Action, Scorpion King and 12 Rounds. The budgets for each will be $3 to $5 million and they will all be rated PG. WWE is hoping that moving away from R ratings will allow more of their younger fans to go see the movies. They are also hoping to get more of their wrestlers booked on TV acting roles so that their movies might resonate beyond the WWE audience.
