John Cena To Star In Movie With Jackie Chan

13 June 2018

John Cena has hopped aboard the Jackie Chan express with the previously untitled action film Project X, which is being directed by Scott Waugh (Need for Speed). The film is described as follows...

The movie focuses on a Chinese-operated oil refinery that is attacked by terrorists in the Middle East. Chan plays a private security contractor tasked with rescuing a group of oil workers. Chan's character teams up with Cena's character, a former Marine, to stop the attackers after discovering that their real plan is to steal a fortune in oil. "The Marine had been fooled into thinking he was working to seize illegally-gotten Chinese assets before he learns that he was had, and partners up with the Snow Leopard Commando".

News of Cena's upcoming role arrives about a month after it was announced that he would replace Dwayne Johnson in Universal Studios' The Janson Directive. Where the WWE superstar has really excelled is comedy (see: Sisters, Blockers), utilizing his big, muscled mug to sell gags with rather startling ease.

He is repped by ICM Partners.
