John Cena and Kumail Nanjiani are set to co-star in an untitled buddy cop comedy that will be helmed by Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer. Deadline Hollywood reports that Universal has acquired the project that is written by Murray Miller (Tour De Pharmacy and 7 Days in Hell).
David Bernad and Fleischer most recently produced Brie Larson’s directorial debut Unicorn Store, and Bernad produced Mike White’s critically acclaimed Brad’s Status, both of which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
There aren't many detials on the project, but I don't know about you, but seeing Cena and Kumail together could be magical. Both are very funny actors and are physically opposite.
