While he’s currently busy frolicking on the beach with bikini-clad ladies for his headlining role in the upcoming comedic-toned Baywatch movie, Dwayne Johnson soon will be gearing up for the release of Central Intelligence. Johnson teams with Kevin Hart in the new action-comedy, which Warner Bros. Pictures has today released a full trailer.
Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re the Millers, Dodgeball) from a screenplay he co-wrote with Ike Bariornholtz and David Stassen, Central Intelligence stars Johnson as 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.
Hitting theaters June 17th, 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 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.
