Former WWE superstar turned actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced that current WWE star John Cena will be starring in the lead role of his upcoming movie, The Janson Directive.

For those unfamiliar, The Janson Directive is the first in a series of movies based on the works of author Robert Ludlum and has been a project that The Rock has been working on developing alongside Universal Pictures, Mythology Entertainment and Captivate Entertainment since 2014.

The original synopsis for the novel reads, “When billionaire philanthropist Peter Novak is kidnapped by a terrorist known as The Caliph, it’s up to Paul Janson – a legend in the notorious U.S. covert agency Consular Operations – to save him. But Janson’s rescue operation goes horribly wrong…and soon Janson is marked for death, the target of a “beyond salvage” order issued from the highest level of the government. Now Janson is running for his life, pursued by Jessica Kincaid, a young agent of astonishing ability who can anticipate and counter his every move. To survive, Janson must outrace a conspiracy that has gone beyond the control of its originators. To win, he must counter it with a conspiracy of his own.”
