The Rock to produce “The Janson Directive” with John Cena as the star
Once before. Once again.
The Rock and John Cena are set to reunite in a different capacity than the WWE Universe might have expected — as producer and star of the upcoming thriller, “The Janson Directive.” Based on a novel from Jason Bourne creator Robert Ludlum, the film has been on The Great One’s radar for some time, and the legendary WWE Champion broke the news on Instagram that his old rival Cena had been cast as the movie’s leading man.

Found my star! Congrats to my good bud John Cena on landing the lead role for our movie, THE JANSON DIRECTIVE. A project that myself, @sevenbucksprod, our production partners and Universal Studios have been developing for years now. Congrats man and I’m excited to go on this journey with you. Thank you for your commitment to the role and remember, as your producer if you screw up, I’m coming to set and droppin’ the People’s Elbow on ya. And you know first hand how devastating my elbow drops can be 😉💪🏾 Congrats my friend and let’s go make a good one. #JansonDirective #JohnCena #SevenBucksProds #CaptivateEnt #WeedRoadPics #MythologyEnt #UNIVERSAL
Cena responded with similar enthusiasm on his own Twitter.
Congratulations to both Superstars on their newest partnership, which will hopefully break as many box office records as the last one did, albeit with far fewer torn muscles.
