Jason Bateman Will Direct Netflix’s Untitled Action-Comedy Film Starring John Cena

Jan 25, 2019

John Cena is going to join Jason Bateman for an untitled Netflix action-comedy.

Bateman will not only star, but also direct the film. Writer Mark Perez is reteaming with Bateman, as he wrote last year’s hit, ‘Game Night.’

The story centers on a family that gets stuck in an old abandoned movie studio. The sets come to life and the family members find themselves stuck in various movies.

Cena was recently in Paramount’s Transformers spin-off  ‘Bumblebee.’ Next up is ‘Project X-Traction,’ with Jackie Chan, which is in post-production. The actor is also getting ready for family comedy ‘Playing With Fire,’ which begins shooting February 4.

Perez is writing a ‘Carmen Sandiego’ feature adaptation for Netflix that will star Gina Rodriguez. Additionally, he wrote the film ‘Accepted.’

Bateman has experience in directing for Netflix, with his work on ‘Ozark.’ He stars in that, as well as ‘Arrested Development.’ Also, the 2013 comedy ‘Bad Words’ was his feature directorial debut.
