Jackie Chan and John Cena are set to team up for the action thriller “Project X” from “Need for Speed” director Scott Waugh.
The movie centers 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 former Marine (Cena) to stop them.
Cena replaces Sylvester Stallone, who was previously attached to star alongside Chan, in the project which Chan produces alongside Joe Tam, Esmond Ren and Hans Canosa. Arash Amel wrote the screenplay.
