John Cena is working on a new movie
While there were several names from the past at Wrestlemania last night, one person who was not present was the 16-time World Champion John Cena. According to PWInsider, Cena was not at ‘The Show of Shows’ because he is currently in New Mexico filming Coyote vs. ACME. As noted, Cena will play Coyote’s former boss at ACME.
The film follows “a down-on-his-luck (human) attorney who takes on Wile E. Coyote as a client in his suit against ACME over its defective products, only to discover that his boss at his former law firm is representing ACME.”
He is set to star in Warner Bros.’ animated hybrid Looney Tunes film Coyote vs. Acme. Deadline reported that Cena will star in the film, which is being directed by Dave Green (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows). The film is written by Samy Burch based on the Looney Tunes characters & Ian Frazier’s humor article “Coyote v. Acme” in The New Yorker. It is described as follows:
The film follows Wile E. Coyote, who after ACME products fail him one too many times in his dogged pursuit of the Roadrunner, decides to hires a billboard lawyer to sue the ACME Corporation. The case pits Wile E. and his lawyer against the latter’s intimidating former boss (Cena), but a growing friendship between man and cartoon stokes their determination to win.
Chris DeFaria and James Gunn are producing, Gunn through his production company Two Monkeys, A Goat and Another, Dead, Monkey. Gunn has worked with Cena on The Suicice Squad and Peacemaker, the latter of which was just renewed for a second season.
Coyote vs. Acme will hit theaters on July 21st, 2023.
