John Cena replaces Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in new thriller The Janson Directive

John Cena has replaced Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in the starring role in new thriller The Janson Directive

It had been announced in 2016 that Johnson would lead a new trilogy based on the novels of Robert Ludlum, best known as the creator of the Bourne series, with The Janson Directive going first.

Two further movies, both adapted from Ludlum's novels, were already in development, with the idea being to create a cinematic universe with constant crossover. 

In the time between Johnson has been unable to fit the movies into his schedule and has now stepped aside for Cena, though he will still act as producer. 

Ludlum's novel tells the story of former consular ops agent who, after leaving covert operations due to the high number of sanctioned serial killings, goes into business as private security consultant.
