After Kumail Nanjiani’s successful film The Big Sick, he has made a name for himself in Hollywood. Right after we heard that the comedian will be hosting Saturday Night Live in October, Deadline broke the news that CinemaCon’s comedy star of the year is now gearing up for a buddy cop comedy film that has been acquired by Universal.
Kumail Nanjiani will be starring alongside WWE wrestler and actor John Cena.
The yet to be titled project will be helmed by Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer. Fleischer is already on board with directing Venom, a Supervillain movie featuring Tom Hardy.
John Cena and Fleishcer have already collaborated before on HBO mockumentary Tour De Pharmacy.
