John Cena, Jackie Chan to team up for action-thriller

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

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

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.
