John Cena has booked his next movie and this time he will be teaming up with the legend Jackie Chan.

The Hollywood Reporter story says that Cena is replacing Sylvester Stallone who was previously attached to star with Chan in this movie, which currently has a working title of Project X.

The movie revolves around a Chinese private security contractor, played by 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 former Marine, played by John Cena, to stop them.

The 16-time former champion has the Bumblebee movie coming out next from Paramount Pictures and will be filming The Jason Directive from Universal Studios and Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions.
