John Cena might be Duke Nukem in upcoming video game adaptation
John Cena just might square off against hordes of aliens and common decency as infamous 1990s video game character Duke Nukem for a forthcoming film adaptation of the franchise.
In an interview with Screen Rant, Cena said he hopes the long-rumored film stays true to the character, emphasizing that the story needs to be right.
“I’m very honored to be attached to that, but that is a very fragile franchise,” Cena said of the “Duke Nukem” series. “That was one that was very timeline specific, that is 1990s to the hilt.”
He added, “… what a blessing to be attached to that, a name like that, and I just hope development does the franchise justice.”
