The Decepticons are about to get an attitude adjustment … because John Cena has been cast as a lead in the upcoming Transformers spinoff.
THR reports that the sixteen time world champion is set to appear in the Bumblebee movie, which will be directed by Travis Knight and also star Hailee Steinfeld.
No word on Cena’s role, but the film will take place in 1987 and the synopsis explains: “Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small California beach town. Charlie (Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary yellow VW bug.”
Bumblebee is set to release on December 21, 2018.
