Jingle All The Way. The very name divides people into those who cringe at the memory of the slapstick-happy Arnold Schwarzenegger Christmas comedy and those who have adopted it as a kitsch classic. The film was released in 1996, and someone has decided that what the world needs is an Arnie-free sequel featuring Larry The Cable Guy alongside WWE wrestler Santino Marella.

Don’t rush to your local cinema to begin queuing for this one all at once, however: it’s strictly being aimed at home entertainment audiences, under the deal between 20th Century Fox and the WWE company. It’s a collaboration that has brought us the likes of the Marine movies (and, indeed,** The Marine 4**, starring WWE’s Mike “The Miz” Mizanin is part of the announcement about the new Jingle).

What exactly the Jingle sequel will feature beyond its leading men remains to be seen. Will Marella (real name Anthony Carelli) take over Arnie’s role as stressed dad Howard Langston, who so memorably struggled to find the tough-to-buy Turbo Man doll for his son “Chamie” (Jake Lloyd)? Or will this be a completely original story of Christmas frustration and family bonding? We know you’re dying to find out. With Alex Zamm directing, this one will be out in time for, you guessed it: Easter. Sorry, Christmas. It’s set for Christmas.
