Industry Recon: John Cena in Talks to Play Duke Nukem in Upcoming Movie.

He’s got BALLLLS OF STEEEL in a WWE ring, and according to Hollywood Reporter, John Cena could take these balls to the big screen to represent one of the most iconic video game figures of my generation.   Despite the fact that the Duke Nukem film neither has a director or a writer attached to the project, Paramount Pictures and Producer “Platinum Dunes”, owned by Michael F***ing Bay, have bought the rights to the film after Dimension Films (…who have done like literally all the “Scream” movies) let their ownership of the rights lapse.  Platinum Dunes has been responsible for the “Purge” series of films, the most recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films, several horror film remakes, and a few original horror IP’s.  There’s no ta ton of information yet on the project, or how negotiations are going, but given that you’ve got Michael Bay attached to do a movie about Duke Nukem, you can guarantee you’re gonna see some shit explode.
