(LOS ANGELES) — WWE superstar-turned Trainwreck scene-stealer John Cena is shown in a new light in a war-set thriller called The Wall.
Cena stars alongside Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the film, directed by Doug Liman, whose credits include The Bourne Identity and the Tom Cruise sci-fi action film Edge of Tomorrow.
The movie finds Cena and Taylor-Johnson playing a U.S. military sniper-spotter team, who are both shot and injured by an unseen sniper. While the pair bleeds — Cena’s character out in the open, and Taylor-Johnson’s protected only by a crumbling brick wall — the enemy sharpshooter harasses them both with bullets and bluster, teasing them over their communicators.
Cut off from help, the pair’s only chance of survival is to somehow find and eliminate the unseen gunman before it’s too late.
The movie opens March 10, 2017.
