John Cena has landed himself another big Hollywood role and is set to star in a new action-thriller alongside movie legend Jackie Chan, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie doesn't have an official title at the moment with it currently known as "Project X" with a release expected in 2019. The movie will be based around a Chinese private security contractor (Chan) who is called in to extract oil workers from a China-run oil refinery in the Middle East after it is attacked. 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.
Cena is actually replacing Sylvester Stallone who was originally planned for the movie.
