The Rock for Central Intelligence
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kevin Hart are to team up on spy comedy Central Intelligence.
The pair began teasing on social media over the weekend that they were soon to work together, and now sources have confirmed to Variety that they have signed for the new action comedy.
The Rock posted a video of himself in the gym on Instagram, giving a shout out to "Hardest workin' man in the room, talkin' to... the other hardest workin' man in the room @kevinhart4real Keep stackin' that belt baby boy..."
Kevin tweeted back: "I see you big fella....The world is not ready for what we are about to hit them with @TheRock ......Let's goooooo."
Kevin will play a former jock turned accountant whose high school reunion is approaching when he is contacted by the class loser, played by Dwayne.
But the loser turns out to be a CIA contract killer who ropes him into his mission to stop a plot to sell classified military secrets.
We're the Millers' Rawson Marshall Thurber will direct.
Shooting is due to begin in the spring.
