John Cena’s time in Hollywood has been a successful one, as he has acted in quite a few different films over the years. That said, not every film of his has seen the light of day. Warner Bros recently pulled the plug on his ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ film but now they seem to have pulled a U-turn in this regard.
John Cena played a role in ‘Coyote vs. Acme,’ a live-action hybrid film that featured the iconic Looney Tunes character, Wile E. Coyote. It was said that production for the film had finished last year.
However, Warner Bros. made the decision to pull the completed film from its release schedule and cited it as a $30 million tax write-off. Naturally, this ended up shocking many people.
According to Puck News, Warner Bros. will now let the filmmakers of Coyote vs. Acme shop the movie to other potential distributors. It was further noted that this decision was reached after the backlash online by animators and filmmakers after suddenly nixing the film. Some heated back-and-forth between the studio and reps for the director and stars also played a role in this.
It is certainly good to see that the film will be getting sold to other distributors as it means that the film will end up seeing the light of day after all. We will have to wait and see when it will be released in the end.
