Is Duke Nukem’s Actor Found?

MOVIE NEWS – Making a cinematic adaptation out of Duke Nukem cannot be perfect without a fitting actor. The person might have just been found!

Hollywood Reporter writes about how John Cena, a WWE wrestler-turned-actor, is in talks with Paramount to be the actor of Duke Nukem, who gave us several golden one-liners two decades ago, such as „It’s time to kick ass and chew bubblegum… and I’m all outta gum!”

We also know who will produce the film for Paramount. It is going to be Platinum Dunes (Purge, recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies for Paramount), ran by Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller. There’s no director yet, and Paramount will find a script writer shortly… possibly after signing the contract with Cena. The movie project was taken over from Dimension Films after the rights relapsed, and Paramount took the movie rights from Gearbox Software.

John Cena has that macho look, which is a good start nevertheless…
