Aaron Paul is in negotiations to join the cast of Central Intelligence, New Line’s action comedy starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson.
Rawson Marshall Thurber is directing the movie, which is shooting in Boston.
The movie sees Hart as a boring accountant who was once the cool guy in high school. He reconnects with an old school acquaintance (Johnson), a man who was a formerly a bullied nerd, via Facebook. But when the man turns out to be a rogue spy, the accountant is dragged into a world of action and intrigue.
Paul will play Johnson’s CIA partner who seemingly sacrifices himself for Johnson.
Amy Ryan and Danielle Nicolet are also in the cast.
