According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Cena has landed a role alongside Jackie Chan in a new action film, directed by Scott Waugh.

Jackie Chan has found a new partner in crime in John Cena.

The duo are set to star in an action thriller from Need for Speed director Scott Waugh, with Cena replacing Sylvester Stallone, who was previously attached to star alongside Chan.

The movie centers on a Chinese private security contractor (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 — a former Marine played by John Cena — to stop them.

Chan will also produce Project X (a working title), along with Joe Tam, Esmond Ren and Hans Canosa. Arash Amel wrote the screenplay.
