WWE Superstar John Cena has been confirmed for role of Duke Nukem in upcoming movie based off the popular video game.
The project’s producer Andrew Form confirmed Cena’s role as the title character recently in an interview with CinemaBlend. Form also added that the script for the film is not finalized, and that Cena could always pull out from the project later if he is unhappy with the direction of the role.
“Yeah, that’s what we’re working with now. He is. Yes. We don’t have a script yet, so that is confirmed at this point but if he reads the script and he doesn’t like the script I’m sure there’s ways that he could pull out, but right now he’s our guy.”
