John Cena and Jackie Chan are teaming for Scott Waugh’s “Project X”, says Heat Vision.
The former steps in for Sylvester Stallone, who was originally attached to co-star with Chan in the Arash Amel written action-thriller.
The movie centers on a Chinese private security contractor (Chan) who is called in to extract the oil workers when a China-run oil refinery in the Middle East is attacked. When he learns that the attackers’ real plan is to steal a fortune in oil, he teams up with an American — a former Marine, played by Cena — to stop them.
Apparently the title of the film (“Project X””) will likely change.
