John Cena looks set to return to Hollywood after his latest run in WWE but one of his movies looks set to never see the light of day.
John Cena was part of the Warner Bros Discovery movie Coyote vs. Acme which was set for release earlier in 2023 but now it seems the live-action and animation hybrid now will be scrapped despite already being filmed.
Deadline has reported that the David Zaslav-led Warner Bros. Discovery is set to take a $30 million tax write-off for the movie which has completed production rather than release it. The picture cost WBD $70 million to make and is the third one made under the previous management of the company that Zaslav has scrapped.
The report notes surprise as unlike Batgirl and Scoob Holiday Haunt, Coyote vs. Acme was a completed film and had tested well with audiences. However, WBD is described as “cash-strapped” and it seems the company does not want to bear the cost of releasing the film in cinemas or even sell it to another company.
Coyote vs. Acme was originally slated for a release on the 21st of July 2023 but was replaced by Barbie which went on to net Warner Bros. Discovery $1.4 billion.
John Cena’s Time In WWE Comes To An End
John Cena is believed to have competed in his final WWE match for now as the SAG-AFTRA strike that had brought Hollywood to a standstill has come to an end.
Cena attempted to win his first televised WWE singles match in five years at Crown Jewel when he took on Solo Sikoa. Unfortunately for fans of the sixteen-time champion of the world, John Cena was decimated by Solo Sikoa in Saudi Arabia and now it seems like it might be some time before Cena can end his winless run, if he ever does.
