John Cena has entered converses with star in the Duke Nukem computer game motion picture adjustment, with Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form’s Platinum Dunes flag creating. Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford affirmed that a film in light of the Duke Nukem amusement arrangement was being developed at E3 a year ago, however the venture has been on radio hush from that point forward. The Duke Nukem character is an amalgamation of 1980s musclehead activity legend tropes who spends his days fending off not all that benevolent extraterrestrials who have assaulted and attacked earth. A film adjustment of the Duke Nukem establishment was first proposed back in the late 1990s by maker Lawrence Kasanoff, following his prosperity with the wide screen adjustment of Mortal Kombat. Plans for the film were then formally declared in 2001, with Kasanoff’s flag Threshold Entertainment creating. Neither Kasanoff’s proposed Duke Nukem movie nor the adaptation put in motion by producer Scott Faye (Max Payne) in 2008 ever made it past pre-production. THR is reporting that Platinum Dunes is now readying to make a go at bringing the character to life itself, with Cena lined up as its star. The project doesn’t have a director attached at the moment, but the search for a screenwriter is underway, with the idea being that they will fashion the movie as a starring vehicle for Cena. Duke Nukem the film was previously set up at Dimension Films but is now pitching its tent at Paramount – the same studio that Bay has directed five Transformers movies and produced two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films for already. Cena has quietly set up camp at Paramount, having already appeared in the studio’s hit comedy sequel Daddy’s Home 2 as well as the first Daddy’s Home (counting his last minute cameo in that movie). He is also slated to appear in this December’s Transformers spinoff Bumblebee: The Movie, which has traded out Bay for Kubo and the Two Stringshelmsman Travis Knight in the director’s chair. Before that, however, Cena will costar in the raunchy comedy Blockersthat Universal has lined up to arrive this April. Duke Nukem, with his comical sense of hyper masculinity and ridiculous physical stature, has only become more of a tongue in cheek parody with time, culminating with Duke being able to protect himself from harm by (literally) using his ego as a shield in 2011’s long-delayed Duke Nukem Forever. Like fellow wrestler turned movie actor Dwayne Johnson, Cena has a knack for using his daunting physicality for comedic effect – a skill that ought to serve him well, when it comes to playing Mr. Nukem.
