Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are teaming up for the buddy action comedy “Central Intelligence” at New Line. Filming aims to begin in the spring.
Hart plays a former high school sports star turned accountant who is contacted by an old classmate (Johnson) whom he bullied and humiliated back in the day.
That ‘loser’ is now a CIA contract killer who ropes the accountant into helping him stop someone who is selling classified military secrets.
Rawson Marshall Thurber (“We’re the Millers”) is helming while Scott Stuber, Peter Principato and Paul Young are producing. Ike Barinholtz and Dave Stassen penned the original script which Sean Anders, John Morris and later Thurber himself rewrote.
