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.




In a pre-Cannes announcement, Aaron Paul has come on board suspense-drama “The Parts You Lose,” to be shot in the Manitoba province of Canada in the fourth quarter.

Myriad Pictures will launch international sales at Cannes of the German-Canadian co-production.

Dutch director Paula van der Oest is directing “The Parts You Lose.” The project reteams “Breaking Bad” actor Paul with producer Mark Johnson, one of the executive producers on the series.

The story centers on an 8-year-old, hearing-impaired boy, who encounters an injured and potentially dangerous fugitive in his small North Dakota town.

The movie will be produced by Johnson and Tom Williams through their Gran Via Productions. Paul will produce through his company Lucid Road Productions. Buffalo Gal Pictures will be the Canadian co-producer, with Buffalo Gal’s Phyllis Laing and Rhonda Baker producing.

Myriad CEO Kirk D’Amico and Pacific Northwest Pictures’ Emily Alden will exec produce. Pacific Northwest Pictures will distribute the film in Canada.




Aaron Paul is looking to reteam with his “Big Love” co-star as he has signed on to co-star with Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried in the Voltage Prods. drama “Fathers and Daughters.”

Gabriele Muccino is directing. Busted Shark Prods., Fear of God Films and Leone Films are also involved in the film with Craig J. Flores and Nicolas Chartier of Voltage and Sherryl Clark of Busted Shark producing.

Story follows  a father and daughter living 25 years apart in New York City. Crowe will portray a famous novelist and widower struggling with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year-old daughter. Seyfried will portray the now-grown daughter in present-day Manhattan as she battles the aftermath of her troubled childhood.

Brad Desch wrote the original script, which was featured on the black list.

Crowe and Keith Rodger will also exec produce via their Fear of God production shingle, along with Romilda De Luca. Andrea Leone Films will also co-produce and handle Italian distribution rights.

Paul is playing Seyfried’s love interest and the role should come naturally given that he played the same part in HBO’s “Big Love.”

Paul can be seen next in DreamWorks’ “Need for Speed” and is currently filming Fox’s Moses pic “Exodus.”


The first trailer for “Need For Speed” was released. I added the screencaps and the stills from the movie to the gallery.  Be sure to watch it below.

Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Tobey tears up the road in a gritty cross-country journey— one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” is directed by Scott Waugh (“Act of Valor”), and also stars Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Dakota Johnson and Scott Mescudi.

“NFS” opening in theaters on March 14, 2014.

Aaron Paul are currently shooting the indie drama Hellion with Juliette Lewis in Port Arthur, TX. Following her short film Hellion, director Kat Candler is turning it into a feature-length version.

Paul shared details on the film:

It’s a film called Hellion. It’s the same producing team that did Take Shelter and Mud — it’s their next project. It surrounds this family, this emotionally absent father who is trying to raise these two boys alone because he lost his wife in a tragic car accident a year before the story starts. It’s a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old [and] I play this emotionally absent father whose trying to raise these two boys.
The 13-year-old misses his mom, he doesn’t have really have a father because he’s not there raising them, so he’s just a hellion — lighting cars on fire, just completely out there. It looks like he’s going to drag his young brother with him, who is just this sweet, young, innocent. So the younger boy gets taken away and put into the system because the house that he’s being raised in is just not a good place to be raised in. The story is really the father desperately trying to get his boy back and tame his oldest. It’s a beautiful story.



20th Century Fox and director Ridley Scott have set four more stars for Exodus, the Biblical epic that already has Christian Bale set to star as Moses and Joel Edgerton as the Egyptian pharoah Ramses II. Ben Kingsley is in talks to play a Hebrew scholar, John Turturro is set to play Seti, father of the Pharoah Ramses, Sigourney Weaver is set to play Ramses’ mother Tuya, and Emmy-winning Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is negotiating to play Joshua, the Hebrew slave who leads the people into the promised land after Moses.

The script is by Steve Zaillian, and Adam Cooper and Bill Collage were the first writers who sold the pitch to Chernin Entertainment, which is producing along with Scott Free. CAA and Independent Talent rep Kingsley, ICM Partners reps Turturro, UTA reps Weaver and UTA and Leverage rep Paul.


Aaron Paul was once again spotted on the set filming scenes for his new film Need For Speed in Macon (April 25) and in Detroit (June 28). Also I’ve added Aaron’s latest appearances to the gallery.
