Act of Valor and Need for Speed director Scott Waugh will direct the film that was previously titled Ex-Baghdad, and is now under the working title Project X. As reported by THR, the action thriller, from writer Arash Amel, will see Jackie Chan’s character as a private security contractor called in to extract the workers from a Chinese oil refinery in the Middle East when it comes under attack. Like in Die Hard, he discovers that these terrorists are really thieves who plan to steal the oil from the refinery. To thwart the dastardly plan to steal the liquid gold, Jackie Chan’s contractor will team up with an American and former Marine played by John Cena. The wrestler and actor replaces action legend Sylvester Stallone, who was originally attached to play the character.
