Speaking to CinemaBlend, Form was quoted as saying when asked about Cena’s involvement in the movie. “Yeah, that’s what we’re working with now. He is. Yes. We don’t have a script yet, so that is confirmed at this point but if he reads the script and he doesn’t like the script I’m sure there’s ways that he could pull out, but right now he’s our guy.”
There is still no word on when the movie will be coming out and apart from it being based on the Duke Nukem franchise, it is unclear as to what the exact story will be. This seems to suggest that we could still be quite a long way of from finding out what exactly it will be like, although it seems that the producers are looking to Deadpool for some inspiration.
According to Form, “We are working on Duke Nukem right now. It’s going to be about tone. That’s about tone. How do you nail that tone in the way that Deadpool nailed the tone? I think we have to do that and if we don’t get the tone right then we’re not going to make the movie.”
