Allison Brie has signed onto John Cena’s new action-comedy Freelance. THR reports that the GLOW and Community star has signed on to co-star in the film, which is being directed by Pierre Morel (Taken) from a script by Jacob Lentz.

The film stars Cena as ex-special forces agent who, desperate to escape his humdrum life, takes a job providing security for a journalist (Brie) who is hoping to salvage her career by interviewing a dictator. Things go sideways when a military coup breaks out in the middle of the interview, and the mismatched duo, along with the dictator, escape to the jungle where they must survive the military chasing them, animals hunting them and each other.

Production begins later this month in Columbia.
