“Saving the World Takes a Big Johnson” Says Poster for ‘Central Intelligence’

"Saving the World Takes a Big Johnson" Says Poster for 'Central Intelligence'

Adding to yesterday’s release of first look images from the film, star Dwayne Johnson just tweeted the below first poster with the double entendre. Beneath it, catch up what you’ve missed in terms of updates on the project.

Danielle Nicolet plays 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 is the bullied nerd who becomes a CIA contract killer… just as you’d expect! 

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

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

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

Ed Helms is exec producing.

No release date set yet; although some time in 2016 is likely.

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.

Within this post you’ll find first look images from the movie.
