John Cena to star in action thriller movie with Jackie Chan

14 June, 2018, 12:08 | Author: Dominic Spencer
  • John Cena issued a huge challenge to The Undertaker on Raw

The film, previously titled Ex-Baghdad, was once billed as Chan's first movie project with fellow action star Sylvester Stallone. From the description above it sounds like it has borrowed elements from films like Wolf Warrior 2 - rescuing Chinese workers in a foreign country - and Die Hard - grand theft under the guise of an attack. Cena will be taking Stallone's place.

Scott Waugh is directing it from a script by Arash Amel. Once he discovers the terrorists' plot to steal the valuable commodity, Chan's character teams up with an American ex-Marine-played by Cena-to thwart the plan. "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". Chan will also produce "Project X" along with Joe Tam, Esmond Ren, and Hans Canosa.

It will be interesting to see whether the innovative Chan asks Cena to display some of the moves and stunts he's learned in a WWE ring.

Cena has two more significant starring roles in upcoming movies - Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, which hits theaters on December 21st, and The Janson Directive, which hits theaters some time in 2019 or 2020 and will be produced by The Rock.
