John Cena To Star Alongside Jackie Chan In New Action Film. DETAILS

WWE star John Cena replaces Sylvester Stallone in Jackie Chan’s Project X

According to Deadline.com, WWE star John Cena has signed on to appear in the yet-to-be-titled Jackie Chan movie now using the working title "Project X", being directed by Scott Waugh ("Need for Speed").

The film, previously titled Ex-Baghdad, was once billed as Chan's first movie project with fellow action star Sylvester Stallone.

Jackie Chan's upcoming project with John Cena is apparently been labeled as "Project X" and is set to release next year.

The movie will be directed by Scott Waugh, who served as the director for Need to Speed.

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.

Chan will also produce Project X (a working title), along with Joe Tam, Esmond Ren and Hans Canosa. 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. Arash Amel wrote the screenplay. This is just one of a few non-comedic roles Cena is trying on for size, including a co-starring part in the upcoming Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee, and the Robert Ludlum Extended Universe entry, The Janson Directive.
