John Cena wants in on the "F&F" franchise.
John Cena and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson once had beef back when they were both headlining a match at Wrestlemania in 2012 and 2013. Fast forward a few years later and now John says it would be a "dream" to work alongside Dwayne in the Fast and Furious franchise.
“That stuff is beyond my control, but I would absolutely love that opportunity,” John told EW. “That, for me, would be a dream. I’m never really like, ‘Oh, I’d like to work with this person,’ but I just think between our chemistry in the live performance setting, there’s something certainly there with The Rock. So that would be my one name on the wish list.”
The two former wrestling heavyweights turned actors are taking over box office favourites. John is set to star in Bumblee, the prequel to Transformers as the film will be set 20 years prior.
"It’s going to be a wonderful piece of this franchise that I think people are going to enjoy,” John said the upcoming film. “I was very intrigued being able to meet the team around the movie. [Director] Travis [Knight] is such a passionate man. The role they were talking to me about doing was very intriguing to me because it’s a road I’ve never been down before, but a road I felt like I could accomplish. And then put that together with the context of the movie, the way that the consumer will now view Bumblebee, all of that stuff was very interesting to me. And then they were stupid enough to say yes.”
Bumblee hits theatres December 21st.
