    Duke Nukem (TBA)





    John Cena is attached to a new Duke Nukem movie and will play the titular character, according to a new interview with the movie’s producers. CinemaBlend recently spoke with producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, and Form comfirmed rumors of Cena’s involvement, saying the WWE Superstar is currently attached to the project:

    Yeah, that’s what we’re working with now. He is. Yes. We don’t have a script yet, so that is confirmed at this point but if he reads the script and he doesn’t like the script I’m sure there’s ways that he could pull out, but right now he’s our guy.

    This is the second new film Cena has been confirmed for; earlier today he was announced for a new ‘Dr. Doolittle’ adaptation starring Robert Downey Jr.


    The Hollywood Reporter first mentioned Cena’s name for the Duke Nukem film in January. According to that report, Platinum Dunes is set to produce the movie for Paramount Pictures.

    Re: Duke Nukem

    If WWE Studios gets involved with the film, there goes Nukem's image as a profane, gun-loving womanizer with humerous one-liners that he's known for since Duke Nukem 3D. And plus, it's hard to take Cena seriously in that type of role.

    Most of Cena's roles aren't affiliated with WWE, Doom.

    They want to do this like Deadpool and Cena is good for comedy roles.

    Re: Duke Nukem

    Cena's legit building a hell of a reputation for him as a comedy actor. Even though from what I've seen it's mostly the same kind of role or two (huge guy who's actually super emotional and funny or just funny jacked jock dude), it seems like people always love it. Not sure how his more serious roles lately went. I think people liked his voice over stuff too, and he's going to be in another one with Robert Downey Jr, Spiderman, and tons of other popular people soon. Dude's doing well for himself.

    On the serious side he was good in The Wall. That ending sucked ass though.

    Honestly Dook, I have not ever seen one film that has Cena in it, nor paid much attention to the ones who produce them.

    He was really good in Trainwreck and apparently he’s hilarious in his upcoming comedy Blockers

    Re: Duke Nukem

    For this to work Cena has to play Nukem straight and have the joke be that he's an out of touch idiot and everyone else around him know that from the off. I'm not sure Cena can do that.

    Isn't that kind of the character he's been playing in WWE for years now?
