John Cena is set to star in an action comedy currently in development at Amazon Studios.
Per Deadline, ‘Officer Exchange’ just sold to Amazon Studios, with Ben Zazove and Evan Turner credited for the script. Not only is Cena slated to star in the project, he’s also listed as an executive producer.
Cena will play Shepard ‘Shep’, who is described as “a wrecking ball of a cop who teams up with an Indian police officer to take down a diamond smuggling ring in India.”
The former WWE Champion is currently filming for the ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ Looney Tunes inspired movie, in which he plays Wile E Coyote’s former boss at Acme.
Cena last wrestled for WWE in August 2021, unsuccessfully challenging for Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship at SummerSlam.
