John Cena has eyed the next project that will bow to his never-ending energetic approach to filmmaking meeting reporting that the peacemaker Star will soon be headlining the new buddy cop comedy officer exchange.
As the name suggests, the new film will do a bit of a reversal rush hour Ding, with Cena’s “wrecking ball,” a cop, Shep, who appears to be headed to India to help take down an international diamond smuggling ring. And while no official sidekick has yet been attached to accompany Cena in his anti-Gem activities, hiring someone from India’s thriving film industry to balance the big man seems like a no-brainer. (It doesn’t hurt that Cena has gone to great lengths to cultivate an international appeal in recent years, most recently with his service in the Fast and Furious ditches.)
officer exchange is one of several projects Cena has taken on after starring in the first season of James Gunn peacemaker on HBO Max (and, more importantly, the opening sequence by James Gunns peacemaker, also on HBO Max). He recently appeared in a small role in Judd Apatows the bubblebut his upcoming list includes a military thriller starring Jackie Chan, a role in Matthew Vaughan’s upcoming film argyleand above all that Movie in which he will end up fighting Wile E. Coyote, who we can’t think of since his announcement.
officer exchange is still in development, with no director attached – although selling it to Amazon will likely help in that regard. The film will be written by Ben Zazove and Evan Turner, who recently wrote the Pierce Brosnan comedy The outlaw for Netflix; Zazove also wrote the screenplay for 2018 Sherlock dwarves (based on the compiled canon of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, of course).
