Warner Bros. shelves ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ film starring John Cena

Warner Bros. has shelved plans to release its ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ live-action film that starred John Cena.

The Hollywood Reporter had the exclusive that Warner Bros. will not release the completed film that wrapped shooting in 2022.

Cena had a starring role in the film, which THR reports cost $72 million to produce.

An unnamed Warner Bros. spokesperson was quoted in the article:

With the re-launch of Warner Bros. Pictures Animation in June, the studio has shifted its global strategy to focus on theatrical releases. With this new direction, we have made the difficult decision not to move forward with Coyote vs Acme. We have tremendous respect for the filmmakers, casts, and crew, and are grateful for their contributions to the film.

Warner Bros. has previously opted to withhold the $90 million ‘Batgirl’ and the $40 million ‘Scoob! Holiday Haunt’ films from being released following their completion.

Cena returned to WWE programming in September and worked through this past Saturday’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia after receiving SAG-AFTRA’s permission to work for the company during the actor’s strike, which reached a tentative agreement on Wednesday evening.
