John Cena will star alongside Jackie Chan in action-thriller


Washington, June 13 (TNS): John Cena has signed on to star alongside action superstar Jackie Chan in an action-thriller from ‘Need for Speed’ director Scott Waugh.

Cena, who is replacing Sylvester Stallone, will team up with Chan to save a China-run oil refinery in the Middle East, according to reports.

The yet untitled movie centers around a private security contractor (Chan) who’s called in to escort a group of civilians along Baghdad’s ‘Highway of Death’ to the safety of the Green Zone.

He teams up with a former U.S. Marine (Cena), when he learns that the attackers’ real plan is to steal the oil.
