News Andrew Form and Brad Fuller Confirm WWE Superstar John Cena Will Play ‘Duke Nukem’ Published 1 year ago on March 27, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet A brand new Duke Nukem movie is currently in the works from the folks at Platinum Dunes, who are responsible for the reboots of (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street). The good people over at the CinemaBlend recently had the opportunity to chat with producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller on the progress of the video game adaptation. Andrew Form and Brad Fuller on Duke Nukem: “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.” Andrew Form hopes it’ll be a fun ride: “You know that having a misogynistic guy in today’s world, how do you make that fun and lovable and at the same time he’s got to be an incredible badass, so those are the things that we’re struggling with and we’re going to try and come out with what I hope is a really fun ride. That’s the goal, is for it to be a really fun ride.” Form confirms their working with John Cena on Duke Nukem: “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 are ways that he could pull out, but right now he’s our guy.” Do you guys think Cena is a good choice to play Duke? He’s definitely got the correct build to play the character, don’t you think? Our fingers are crossed that this one turns out to be a respectable adaptation of the beloved video games.
