We all know that Dwayne Johnson is a bona fide action star, but the wrestler turned actor is now looking to show off his comedy chops. That will be Rawson Marshall Thurber’s Central Intelligence, starring Kevin Hart.
The movie will see Hart play a mild-mannered accountant who is contacted by an old friend from school (Johnson) before their reunion. He then learns that Johnson’s character – who he used to protect from bullies in school – is now a contract killer for the CIA who needs his help to foil a plan to sell military secrets.
However, based on the first look image below and the description which comes with it, Central Intelligence will be a lot different to what many expected. Johnson’s character in particular sounds like quite a departure to his normal action movie roles, and anyone who followed him in WWE will know he’s a very funny guy.

A blast crafting and creating this dude… The inspiration behind this character “Bob” has always been Tom Hanks in “BIG” with an added twist. He’s a grown man who’s extremely childlike and views the world thru exuberant and enthusiastic teenage eyes… Loves to wear his favorite Public Enemy shirt, cargo pants and sneakers to work.. and rocks a fanny pack which holds his Bruce Lee quotes and a condom (he’s always prepared). The “added twist” is Bob has an extremely high IQ and is one of the most lethal men on the planet as a C.I.A. contract killer. Oh the most important character trait.. He hates bullies. Can’t wait for y’all to meet “Bob”. #FightThePower #BeWaterMyFriend #FannyPackYetDeadly CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE. SUMMER 2016.
