John Cena to Feature in Several Netflix Original Movies
John Cena, the beloved comedy star is partnering with Jason Bateman to produce a new movie for Netflix. Reports indicate that Cena already signed on to feature in a yet-to-be-titled action comedy for Netflix, the giant online streaming network. Bateman has an attachment with the project, and there is a high likelihood that he would also appear in it.
Sources claim that the movie would be based on a family stuck in a movie studio that’s old and abandoned. That is where the movie gets its life. Also, the members of the family discovered that they were stuck in different movies. According to reports, the project has a vibe similar to Game Night, and it’s understandable considering that Mark Perez, who wrote Game Night is also the one behind this new movie.
Perez also wrote the upcoming live-action movie for the streaming network titled Carmen Sandiego. The movie stars Gina Rodriguez, and the project is quite different from the Carmen Sandiego series, the animated version that also stars Gina Rodriguez. Fingers are crossed as to whether or not Cena will be a part of Carmen Sandiego universe.
About New Movie
This movie by Netflix is a move in continuation of its production of original films of high quality featuring A-list talent. Netflix intends to make lots of original films before the end of the year, and this project is one embarked on pursuant to that intention.
Cena, the WWE superstar who has also turned actor, has been featuring in lots of comedies, and he does really great in them. It will be recalled that his last comedy was titled Blockers.
The movie revolves around three parents who got to know that their daughters were trying to lose their virginity on their prom night and who decided to do anything possible to stop that. It might not sound so good on paper, but it is a very mindful and sweet comedy with Cena playing his role perfectly.
The new movie is to be directed by Jason Bateman, and some sources have reported that Bateman would also feature in the movie.
Bateman isn’t a stranger to Netflix. Coupled with the fact that Netflix airs the recently released Arrested Development episodes, the streaming titan also airs Ozark, the crime drama featuring Bateman.
Bateman didn’t only star on the show, he also directed several episodes of it. This new action comedy upon release would stand as the second feature film directed by Bateman. His first director role was for Bad Words, a comedy released in 2013.
The last movie from John Cena was Bumblebee. The movie did not particularly get so much attention, all thanks to the release of Aquaman around the same period. However, that didn’t stop the movie from getting lots of positive reviews. In addition, it was considered to be a good upgrade for the Transformers franchise.
The movie also made sufficient money oversees enough to justify the production of a sequel which is reportedly being developed at the moment. The next project Cena will feature in is Project X-Traction, an action movie that also features Jackie Chan. He is also preparing to star in a family comedy titled Playing with Fire.
The new project John Cena is working on appears to have brought together the right set of people to give it life. As earlier mentioned, it appears to have some similar features with Game Night, a movie where an incredible experience resulted from a quite standard situation. For now, Netflix has not yet announced the project’s release date, and our fingers remain crossed for that.
