John Cena, already announced for two appearances in WWE next month, is also set to star in the film Freelance alongside Alison Brie, Juan Pablo Raba, and Christian Slater.
The movie, coming to theaters on October 6, officially has a trailer released with the following synopsis:
An ex special forces operative stuck in a dead-end desk job (John Cena) reluctantly takes on a gig to provide private security for a washed-up journalist (Alison Brie) as she interviews a ruthless—but impeccably dressed—dictator (Juan Pablo Raba). When a military coup breaks out just as she’s about to get the scoop of a lifetime, the unlikely trio must figure out how to survive the jungle, the assassins, and each other in order to make it out alive.
From the dynamic director of TAKEN and PEPPERMINT comes FREELANCE… Saving the day doesn’t come cheap!
Brie previously starred in the series GLOW which took a fictionalized look at the women’s wrestling promotion of the same name, Raba was most notably in the series Narcos airing on Netflix, and Slater received a Critic’s Choice Television Award nomination in 2022 for his role in the series Dr. Death.
