"Breaking Bad" veteran Aaron Paul is in talks to join Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in the action-comedy "Central Intelligence."
Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber ("Easy A," "We're the Millers"), the New Line film stars Hart as a one-time high-school athlete turned boring accountant who reconnects a formerly bullied nerd (Johnson), who turns out to be a contract killer for the CIA.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paul will play Johnson's CIA partner. Amy Ryan ("Gone Baby Gone") and Danielle Nicolet also star.
A three-time Emmy Award winner for his performance as Jesse Pinkman on "Breaking Bad," Paul will next be seen in the heist film "Triple Nine" opposite Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet and Norman Reedus.
"Central Intelligence" opens June 17, 2016.
