John Cena is back in action, this time in an all-new action comedy titled Freelance. A seemingly perfect vehicle for the pro-wrestler turned actor, the film showcases his comedic timing as well as action star credentials.
In Freelance, John Cena portrays an ex-special forces operative who is stuck in a dead-end desk job. To make ends meet, he 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).
However, 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.
Directed by experienced action filmmaker, Pierre Morel who helmed Taken and Peppermint, the film proves that saving the day doesn’t come cheap. Joining John Cena, Alison Brie, and Juan Pablo Raba in Freelance are Alice Eve and Christian Slater. Check out the trailer below.
