According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Cena has landed a role alongside Jackie Chan in a new action film, directed by Scott Waugh. It feels like Cena is one great collaboration from being a bona fide action stud, and maybe Project X is the movie that will take him to that level. The film is about Chan as a private security contractor who is called to extract oil workers when a China-run oil refinery in the Middle East is attacked.
Cena is replacing Sylvester Stallone in the movie, which had been developed as "Ex-Baghdad".
He uncovers a conspiracy and teams up with an American ex-Marine, played by Cena, who conveniently lives in Iraq, teaching orphans. The Marine had been fooled into thinking he was working to seize illegally gotten Chinese assets before he learns he was had and partners up with the Snow Leopard Commando. Apart from acting, Jacke Chan will co-produce the film along with Joe Tam, Esmond Ren, and Hans Canosa.

All over a "nice bottle of pinotage", mention of South Africa's signature wine seemed to irk the South Africa fan. Today, Siya Kolisi will follow in Madiba's footsteps down the same tunnel to lead the Springboks into a new dawn.
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.
On the work front, John Cena, who was last seen in Blockers will be next seen in Bumblebee and Universal's The Janson Directive.
