Looks like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and John Cena have stopped feuding on Jimmy Kimmel Live! long enough to work out a movie deal. Cena is slated to star in new film The Janson Directive, executive produced by Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia's Seven Bucks Productions.
Based on the novel by Robert Ludlum, who also created The Bourne Identity series, The Janson Directive was published posthumously and tells the story of an ex-Navy Seal who gets wrapped up with the government.
"Found my star!" Johnson captioned a video of himself announcing the casting news on Instagram. "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."
Despite the fact that Cena's last words to Johnson were inviting him to come clean his butt, Johnson couldn't be more thrilled.
"Congrats man and I’m excited to go on this journey with you," he said, going on to add a dash of their signature banter. "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."
