Duke Nukem: Cobra Kai replaces John Cena in the film that will (finally) hit the cinema
The film adaptation of the video game. Duke Nuke will finally see the light of day, except that John Cena and Michael Bay have been replaced by cobra kai.
Video games have had a good reputation in Hollywood lately. Between the (small) success ofUnexplored that runs the risk of transforming Playstation into Marvel and sonic 2 which this year became the biggest success of a video game adaptation in American theaters, big studios have reason to be tempted to sand down game consoles back and forth in search of new concepts.
And for once, do not hesitate: The last of us, horizon zero dawn, God of War and many others are preparing to arrive either in series or in movies, in theaters or on Netflix, on Amazon or on HBO Max. A sacred movement will benefit from a cult license from the 90s to finally land in dark rooms after decades of failed projects: Duke Nuke.
He is back
In fact, the hollywood reporter announced that Duke Nuke if this time it landed in the cinema, thanks to the Legendary studio that entrusted the production to Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the trio behind the phenomenon series cobra kai. An amazing mix that finally does justice to a saga of games that has been trying to sneak onto the big screen for years.
Created in the early 90s, the saga Duke Nuke really earned his letters of nobility in 1996 by thoroughly revamping the FPS codes with his duke nukem 3d. The franchise then became a cult and has fantasized many craftsmen of the cinema who have managed to try in vain to adapt it to the cinema. The project that has come closest to the production box is undoubtedly Paramount’s, produced by Michael Bay and with John Cena in the lead role.
He’ll bring out the big guns!
But four years after the announcement of the exluchador behind the glasses of the ultraviolent soldier, the feature film does not give anything new. Despite everything, let us have faith in this new project led by the creators of cobra kai which seems, for once, on track to succeed. Either this version of Duke Nuke no actor, director or story yetIn any case, it will be interesting to see brought to the big screen, in the 2020s, the adventures of this muscular man surrounded by women with small outfits and big weapons, who fucks with robots and aliens.
Heald, Hurwitz and Schlossberg have already proven their worth in reviving a disused franchise like karate kidto see if they will be able to do the same with Duke Nuke. While you wait to see if the movie will be as wacky and generous as we hope, keep in mind that Gearbox (the studio that owns the rights to the franchise for Duke Nukem forever in 2011) is currently preparing a feature film borderlands, directed by Eli Roth with Cate Blanchett and Kevin Hart. Like what, video games are not going to desert theaters.
