Stars of The Suicide Squad, Idris Elba and John Cena are set to unite once more for the Amazon action movie, Head of State. The film will reportedly be a 90s-styled action flick, following the tried and tested ‘buddy cop’ formula.
Deadline reported that initial treatment for the film is seemingly like a cross between Air Force One and Hobbs & Shaw. Head of State will be produced by Peter Safran and John Rickard. The former also served as a producer on James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, in which Cena and Elba are starring as Peacemaker and Bloodsport respectively.
Cena’s Peacemaker will also feature in a HBO Max series based on the character. The former WWE superstar will reprise the role for the series in which Gunn is producing and also co-directing. Cena has also joined the Fast & Furious franchise with a significant role in Fast 9 due out in Summer 2021.
