John Cena's Upcoming Coyote Vs. Acme Movie Shelved By Warner Bros.
You can't see John Cena's Wile E. Coyote movie.
A movie starring John Cena will not see the light of day after Warner Bros. decided to shelve the project, despite filming being completed on it.
Coyote vs. Acme was a live action/animation hybrid originally slated to air on HBO Max (now simply called Max), with principal photography wrapping up in 2022. Cena was set to play one of the primary antagonists to Looney Tunes character Wile E. Coyote.
A July 21, 2023 release date came and went without as much as a trailer, with WB deciding to stick it in the vault instead as they had done previously with the Batgirl film.
The studio cited a decision to focus on theatrical releases as the reason for not releasing Coyote vs. Acme.
While one Cena project is on the scrapheap, the 16-time WWE world champion will no doubt be getting back to work on various other film and television projects soon now that the SAG-AFTRA strike has ended.
The 46-year-old's most recent WWE run came to an end at Crown Jewel on November 4, where Cena lost to Solo Sikoa.
