John Cena Will Star In Movie Produced By Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

John Cena Will Star In Movie Produced By Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

John Cena and The Rock didn't always see eye to eye in the WWE ring. Dwayne Johnson once labelled Cena a 'big fat bowl of Fruity Pebbles' while his opponent said The Rock was the reason for his personal and professional issues.

But it looks like they've decided to leave that in the past as they've teamed up to be in a movie together.

Dwayne Johnson announced the news via Instagram, saying that the film he's producing, The Janson Directive, has picked Cena to be the actor they want for the lead role Paul Janson.

The movie is based off Robert Ludlum's novel of the same name and from the sounds of things, Cena is a perfect fit for the job.

It's about former Navy SEAL Paul Janson who now works as a corporate security consultant. He's got pretty bad PTSD from his time in the Vietnam War and being at the mercy of his commander, Alan Demarest, who ended up being executed for war crimes.

A woman contacts him for a job: rescuing Nobel Peace Laureate visionary and billionaire Peter Novak. But the job gets botched and Janson has to fend off a militant organisation while stumbling across a 'decades-old conspiracy that will rock the foundations of all countries in the world if exposed'.

Sounds pretty juicy if you ask me.

Johnson said: "This is a project that myself, @sevenbucksprod, our production partners and Universal Studios have been developing for years now.

"Congrats, man, and I'm excited to go on this journey with you. Thank you for your commitment to the role and remember, as your producer if you screw up, I'm coming to set and droppin' the People's Elbow on ya.

"And you know first hand how devastating my elbow drops can be. Congrats, my friend, and let's go make a good one."

John Cena has been racking up some decent acting credits, toying with both serious and comedic roles. He's starred and co-starred in The Marine, 12 Rounds and Legendary, which were all heavy action films, but made us laugh with Trainwreck and Daddy's Home 2.

He's certainly got the grit to take on a role described as an ex-Navy SEAL, who we all know are built like brick shithouses.

There's no word on when we can expect this blockbuster but the only thing we pretty much can definitely bank on is that a Cena and Johnson team will produce something epic.
