Seems that Dean Parisot will be returning to the directors chair for the first time in five years to direct the Ed Helms lead cast in Central Intelligence.
Ed Helms is probably most recognized recently for his role in the Hangover as the Dentist buddy who is missing a tooth.
Dean Parisot, best known for directing the brilliant Galaxy Quest, has signed on to direct the comedy Central Intelligence starring Ed Helms for Universal. According to Variety the film is about an accountant who “reconnects with an old friend via Facebook and his life is engulfed by the world of international espionage.”
I loved Galaxy Quest, and if this guy had only one credit to his name and that was it, I would be his biggest supporter in anything he ever did. Just brilliant stuff there. Well he did also do Fun with Dick and Jane which was was less than impressed with.
So I will be keeping an eye out for Central Intelligence to see how it works out for Helms as a lead as well.
