Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star in the action comedy Central Intelligence opening Friday, June 17 for New Line Cinema and Universal Pictures. The story follows a one-time bullied geek, Bob (Johnson), who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent, coming home for his high school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, Bob enlists the help of former “big man on campus” Calvin (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 even Calvin can count.
Central Intelligence also stars Oscar nominee Amy Ryan, Aaron Paul, and Danielle Nicolet. The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, with a screenplay by Ike Barinholtz & David Stassen and Rawson Marshall Thurber, based on a story by Ike Barinholtz & David Stassen.
