The living cartoon John Cena will fight the real cartoon Wile E. Coyote
It’s not particularly new to see that John Cena has the face of a tall, happy man. Cartoon character. Cena’s ability to contort himself into extreme expressions of sadness or joy has been a big part of his rise as a comedy star over the past few years.both sides of the equation being fully displayed in HBO Max recently renewed Peacemaker.
Now he’s ready to pit that rubbery mug against a literal Looney Tune, with Warner Media announcing today that the former wrestling star will star alongside Wile E. Coyote in a new live-action/animation hybrid film, Coyote vs. ACME.
By Deadlinesaid movie is based (very loosely, we’ll guess) on one 1990 New Yorker story by Ian Fraziuh, Who imagine Mr. Coyote finally getting fed and sue ACME Corporation for all the faulty rocket sleds, spring shoes, and myriad explosive devices that have backfired over the years. (The main joke – and it’s a good joke – being the description of all those absurd cartoon shenanigans in the driest legal language Frazier can gathering.)
Cena is set to play one of the play’s main antagonists, the attorney representing ACME in the ensuing lawsuit. (And former “billboard lawyer” boss Wile E. hires to represent him.) And, like, yeah: We have absolutely no problem with John Cena getting mad at a variety of cartoon characters as they take the stand to witness ACME’s various mail-order monstrosities.
Coyote vs. ACME is directed by Dave Green, who recently helmed the second film produced by Michael Bay Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, Out of the shadowsin 2016. The screenplay is written by Samy Burch. Cena, meanwhile, is currently playing on Peacemaker; the show’s first-season finale airs this Thursday.
