Duke Nukem movie: John Cena set to star

John Cena is set to play Duke Nukem in the movie take on the videogame character…
It’s taken a long time, but there’s finally some solid progress on bringing the videogame character Duke Nukem to the big screen. Centring on the character of Duke, who smokes, swears, kills and saves the world, the games peaked early in their run with Duke Nukem 3D in 1996. The fourth game, Duke Nukem Forever, did indeed take pretty much forever to arrive, eventually landing in 2011. It did not land well, either.

The film version is set to be headlined by former wrestler John Cena, who most recently on the big screen lent his voice to the animated movie Ferdinand.

It’s early stages for the project, with neither a writer nor a director in place as of yet. The plan, though, is to make this is a starring vehicle for Cena, presumably with a view on a franchise. There’s no way that this won’t get an R rating, either.

Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes company is producing.
