‘Freelance’ Movie Trailer: John Cena is Alison Brie’s Security in Action-Comedy


John Cena and Alison Brie lead the upcoming action comedy Freelance, which has its first trailer available for you to watch above.

What is Freelance‘s plot? Here’s the official synopsis from U.S. distributor Relativity Media:

An ex special forces operative stuck in a dead-end desk job (John Cena) reluctantly takes on a gig to provide private security for a washed-up journalist (Alison Brie) as she interviews a ruthless—but impeccably dressed—dictator (Juan Pablo Raba). When a military coup breaks out just as she’s about to get the scoop of a lifetime, the unlikely trio must figure out how to survive the jungle, the assassins, and each other in order to make it out alive.

Who directed and wrote Freelance?

The film is directed by Pierre Morel, the action-focused French filmmaker whose credits include Taken, Peppermint, District B13, and From Paris with Love. The screenplay was written by Jacob Lentz, with his first feature screenplay credit following a longtime writing gig on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a stint on early 2000’s series Ed.

When will Freelance be released?

Freelance, also starring Christian Slater, will be opening in U.S. cinemas on October 6th.
