Danielle Nicolet Books Female Lead Role in Dwayne Johnson/Kevin Hart Action Comedy 'Central Intelligence'

Danielle Nicolet has signed up to play the female lead opposite Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, in New Line’s buddy action-comedy, “Central Intelligence,” which follows former high school classmates who reunite years later, with each not quite what the other expected he would become. One was a high school jock who is now a boring accountant, while the other, who was bullied and trashed on as a kid, is now a CIA contract killer. The latter encourages the former to help him foil a plot to sell classified military secrets.

Hart plays the former high school jock who is now an accountant, and Johnson will be the bullied nerd who becomes a CIA contract killer, just as you’d expect! 

Danielle Nicolet will play Hart’s wife, who was also his high school sweetheart.

Rawson Marshall Thurber (“We’re the Millers”) is directing, from a script he’s re-writing (it’s apparently been through the hands of several writers, which isn’t always a good sign for any project).

Scott Stuber will produce through his Bluegrass Films shingle, along with Peter Principato and Paul Young of Principato-Young Entertainment. 

Ed Helms is exec producing.

A spring 2015 shoot is eyed. 

Nicolet will next be seen on the small screen in TV One’s upcoming summer original series, “Born Again Virgin,” alongside Gabrielle Dennis and Eva Marcille, as three 30-something best friends living and loving in Atlanta.

With both Hart and Johnson in front of the camera in “Central Intelligence,” this could actually be a big hit for New Line, and Nicolet’s highest profile role. Not only are Hart & Johnson 2 of the busiest actors right now, they also have proven box office resumes.

I have a movie idea for Kevin. Let me get finished writing the script.

This sounds just as non funny and unimaginative as the Get Hard film.

Danielle kinda,sorta looks like Tamala Jones. Hart being the accountant sounds different(wasn’t he Chris Rock’s agent in "Top Five"), I can see Johnson being a contract killer. I take it this will be released by the end of the year. I bet it’s gonna have a car chase involved but the twist will be that Johnson can’t drive well so Hart will be behind the wheel.
