Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star in New Line Cinema and Universal’s action comedy Central Intelligence which gets its UK release on July 1st.
The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high-school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former “big man on campus” (Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days.
But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into, it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.
Central Intelligence also stars Oscar nominee Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone), Aaron Paul (TV’s Breaking Bad) and Danielle Nicolet (TV’s The Game). The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re the Millers, Dodgeball).
The screenplay is by Ike Barinholtz & David Stassen and Rawson Marshall Thurber, from a story by Ike Barinholtz & David Stassen.
It is produced by Scott Stuber (Ted), Peter Principato (TV’s Black-ish), Paul Young (Black-ish) and Michael Fottrell (Furious Seven). Serving as executive producers are Ed Helms, who worked with Thurber on We’re the Millers, Samuel J. Brown and Michael Disco.
