HOLLYWOOD- Wrestler turned actor John Cena has teamed up with Jackie Chan for Scott Waugh’s upcoming action thriller Project X.

The film focuses 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.”

Earlier Sylvester Stallone was to pair with Chan but Cena finally got the role. Chan will also produce the film, along with Joe Tam, Esmond Ren and Hans Canosa.
