John Cena Set To Star In A Netflix Action/Comedy Film Directed By Jason Bateman


In the past few years, WWE superstar John Cena has begun the slow transition of moving from the squared circle into different areas of show business. Early in his wrestling career, Cena starred in the WWE Films The Marine and  12 Rounds as a way of promoting the company’s newly-created production studios. However, after nearly 17 years of hits, slams, surgeries and rehabilitation, it seems Cena has put much more focus in his non-wrestling abilities. From guest-hosting on NBC’s Today to appearances in films like TrainwreckSistersFerdinandBlockers and the recent Bumblebee, it seems Cena is prepared to take on more acting work.

Bateman currently stars on Netflix’s Ozark, but has directed numerous episodes for the series as well.
