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.
