Alison Brie is set to star opposite John Cena in Freelance, an action-comedy directed by Taken helmer Pierre Morel.

AGC Studios is the brain behind this project. It features Steve Richards from Endurance Media and Sentient’s Renee Tab as producers.

Jacob Lentz’s script centers on an ex-special forces officer who, in desperate need of escaping his mundane life, accepts a job as a security guard for a journalist, who hopes to save her career by interviewing dictators.
