John Cena has signed on to star alongside action superstar Jackie Chan in an action-thriller from Need for Speed director Scott Waugh.

Cena, who is replacing Sylvester Stallone, will team up with Chan to save a China-run oil refinery in the Middle East, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The yet untitled movie centres around a private security contractor (Chan) who’s called in to escort a group of civilians along Baghdad’s ‘Highway of Death’ to the safety of the Green Zone.

He teams up with a former US Marine (Cena), when he learns that the attackers’ real plan is to steal the oil.
