The Rock and John Cena are two of the most recognizable goliaths of the pro-wrestling industry. The two icons who once collided in a clash of a century in the WWE will now team-up to work on an upcoming film together.
The Rock, who is the co-founder of Seven Bucks Production, will be producing an upcoming film titled “The Janson Directive”. The movie is based on a novel of the same name and is written by the author who created the iconic character of Jason Bourne.
The Rock took to his Instagram account to reveal that John Cena has been cast in the lead role in the film. He went on to reminisce about his epic WrestleMania showdown against Cena and how he is excited to work with his longtime friend.
The Rock also jokingly said that if Cena screws up then he might get the People’s Elbow on the sets.
Found my star! Congrats to my good bud John Cena on landing the lead role for our movie, THE JANSON DIRECTIVE. A project that myself, @sevenbucksprod, our production partners and Universal Studios have been developing for years now. Congrats man and I’m excited to go on this journey with you. Thank you for your commitment to the role and remember, as your producer if you screw up, I’m coming to set and droppin’ the People’s Elbow on ya. And you know first hand how devastating my elbow drops can be 😉💪🏾 Congrats my friend and let’s go make a good one. #JansonDirective #JohnCena #SevenBucksProds #CaptivateEnt #WeedRoadPics #MythologyEnt #UNIVERSAL
John Cena also took to his Twitter account to express his thoughts on working with The Rock on this film. Cena thanked the Rock for the opportunity and said that the hard work will start now.
