John Cena new movie

It was officially announced on Deadline today that John Cena has joined the cast of “Fast and Furious 9”.

Vin Diesel initially teased back in April on his Instagram account that Cena was joining the cast. Production is set to begin later this month with a May 22, 2020 release date targeted.

It was also reported that Dwayne Johnson will not be in the movie.

Cena, who has assumed a part time role with WWE, was last seen at WrestleMania 35 resurrecting his Doctor of Thuganomics gimmick in a rap battle against Elias.
