Idris Elba and John Cena will reunite in Heads of State, a new action movie in the works at Amazon Studios.
The project was pitched specifically to team the two actors back up following the release of The Suicide Squad next year, which will feature both Elba and Cena as part of the titular team of antiheroes. Amazon reportedly acquired the rights to Heads of State quickly after a Zoom pitch meeting with screenwriter Harrison Query and producers Peter Safran and John Rickard of The Safran Company.
Harrison Query is penning the script and Peter Safran and John Rickard are producing.
WWE star-turned-actor Cena and Elba are already on board the Suicide Squad sequel, with James Gunn writing and directing the Warner Bros. superhero follow-up.
There are very few details known about the project currently but it has been pitched as a “90s style two-hander,” with a “high octane premise” that will be part Air Force One, part Hobbs and Shaw. With a title like Heads of State and the comparison to Air Force One, expect this to take a presidential spin on an action film.
