UPDATE: Have a look at the first TRAILER below!
SYNOPSIS: 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.
Action star DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON (Hercules) will be teaming up with comedian KEVIN HART (Ride Along) for the action comedy CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE!
The film will be directed by RAWSON MARSHALL THURBER (We’re The Millers) and executive produced by ED HELMS, star of ‘The Hangover’ series.
The plot will revolve around “a former high school sports star-turned-accountant (Hart) contacted by a classmate (Johnson) who was bullied and humiliated as a teen but is now a CIA contract killer, who proceeds to rope him into helping foil a plot to sell classified military secrets.”
The movie is not even out yet but I could already see how hilarious this will be! Matching up a big action hero like ‘The Rock’ (who is also quite funny in his own right; check out his SNL episodes and you will see) with a comedic genius like Hart could only result in some seriously funny sh*t! Just looking at how different they look physically already makes me laugh out loud.
‘Central Intelligence’ is set to release next summer on June 17, 2016!
