John Cena To Star In Looney Tunes Live-Action/Animated Hybrid COYOTE VS ACME

John Cena ("Peacemaker") has signed on to star in Warner Bros' live-action/CG animation hybrid feature film "Coyote Vs. Acme", which will be directed by "Earth to Echo" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" helmer Dave Green. The latest draft of the script was penned by Samy Burch, based on the Looney Tunes characters and the 1990 New Yorker humor article "Coyote V. Acme" by Ian Frazier.

The film, which has been described as part courtroom drama, part family comedy, follows Wile E. Coyote, who after ACME products fail him one too many times in his dogged pursuit of the Roadrunner, decides to hire a billboard lawyer to sue the ACME Corporation. The case pits Wile E. and his lawyer against the latter's intimidating former boss (Cena), but a growing friendship between man and cartoon stokes their determination to win.

Production will begin in late March in New Mexico. Chris DeFaria and James Gunn are producing the film, which is set to open in theaters on July 21, 2023.

Cena will also star in the second season of the HBO Max series "Peacemaker".
