Los Angeles: Wrestler-actor John Cena is in negotiations to lead the cast of Paramount Pictures' new comedy "Playing With Fire". The film will be produced by Todd Garner and Sean Robins of Broken Road Productions, according to Variety.

Cena, 41, most recently featured in comedy "Blockers", alongside Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz.
