We recently learned that a new Duke Nukem movie was in the works and that it could star John Cena, who would be perfect for the role. Well, if you are still wondering about the rumors, it looks like it has been confirmed by Andrew Form, one of the producers of the movie.
Speaking to CinemaBlend, Form was quoted as saying when asked about Cena’s involvement in the movie. “Yeah, that’s what we’re working with now. He is. Yes. We don’t have a script yet, so that is confirmed at this point but if he reads the script and he doesn’t like the script I’m sure there’s ways that he could pull out, but right now he’s our guy.”
We still don’t know when the movie will be coming out since it is so early in the process and aside from it being based on the Duke Nukem game franchise, it is unclear as to what the story will be about. We do know that the producers are looking to Deadpool for some inspiration.
According to Form, “We are working on Duke Nukem right now. It’s going to be about tone. That’s about tone. How do you nail that tone in the way that Deadpool nailed the tone? I think we have to do that and if we don’t get the tone right then we’re not going to make the movie.” He’s not wrong.
