Wrestler turned actor John Cena and “The Big Sick” star and comedian Kumail Nanjiani are attached to star in an untitled buddy cop comedy at Universal Pictures.
“Zombieland” director Ruben Fleischer will helm the project and produce alongside David Bernad. Murray Miller (“Tour De Pharmacy,” “7 Days in Hell”) will pen the script.
Specifics of the plot are under wraps. Fleischer will next direct the “Spider-Man” spin-off feature “Venom” starring Tom Hardy.
