Guess ‘Hustle Hart’ is in full affect, because Kevin Hart has added another film project to his list of things to do. For an upcoming action-comedy, Hart will team up with actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson for the film currently titled, “Central Intelligence.” Earlier Variety shared news about the new movie. Last year, Hart teamed up with Ice Cube for his first action-comedy ‘Ride Along,’ whose sequel is expected to hit theaters in January of 2016.
Following the success of Sony’s “Jump Street” franchise, New Line plans to investigate its own buddy action-comedy, enlisting two of Hollywood’s hottest stars: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. Sources confirm to Variety the duo will star in “Central Intelligence,” with “We’re the Millers” filmmaker Rawson Marshall Thurber directing the movie. Scott Stuber will produce through his Bluegrass Films banner, along with Peter Principato and Paul Young of Principato-Young Entertainment. “The Hangover” star Ed Helms is exec producing. The story begins with a class reunion approaching, as a former high school sports star turned accountant (Hart) is contacted by a classmate (Johnson) who was bullied and humiliated back in the day. The “loser” that the accountant remembers is now a CIA contract killer who ropes him into helping foil a plot to sell classified military secrets….New Line plans to begin shooting in the spring with Sam Brown and Michael Disco overseeing. Beau Bauman is managing for Bluegrass.
