According to a story on The Hollywood Reporter, John Cena is in talks to star as Duke Nukem in a “a star vehicle” film for the former wrestler.

There is no director or writer attached to the project at the moment; at the moment it’s all on paper as a means to get Cena on the big screen in an action role.

Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes will be making the movie.

In case you need reminding, Duke Nukem—once a popular video game star with a critically and commercially successful series under his belt—has been a bit of a laughing stock since the disastrous release in 2011 of Duke Nukem Forever.

Luke Plunkett is a Senior Editor based in Canberra, Australia. He has written a book on cosplay, designed a game about airplanes, and also runs cosplay.kotaku.com.
