John Cena’s time in Hollywood has been a successful one, as he has acted in quite a few different films over the years. That said, not every film of his has seen the light of day. Warner Bros recently pulled the plug on his ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ film. Warner Bros Discovery shelved the film entirely and even refused offers for the same, which has now led to #ReleaseCoyoteVsAcme trending on social media.

In case you didn’t know, John Cena played a role in ‘Coyote vs. Acme,’ a live-action hybrid film that featured the iconic Looney Tunes character, Wile E. Coyote. It was said that production for the film had finished last year.

However, Warner Bros. decided to pull the completed film from its release schedule and cited it as $30 million tax write-off. Naturally, this ended up shocking many people. It was then reported that Warner Bros. let the filmmakers of Coyote vs. Acme shop the movie to other potential distributors.

Warner Bros Discovery would then shelve the movie entirely recently. Following the film getting shelved, composer Steve Price took to Twitter and shared behind-the-scenes photos of the film’s scoring session and this eventually led to #ReleaseCoyoteVsAcme tending online.


It is simply a shame that ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ may never see the light of day, as the film was clearly made with a lot of love and passion and their hard work will never be appreciated by anyone now.
