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.” The film will be produced by Peter Principato and Paul Young (Reno 911) and written by Ike Barinholtz (a star of Disaster Movie) and Dave Stassen (Rome is Burning).
For Helms, this could well be his first lead role and it’s obviously the next logical step up in his career. Everything he’s done, from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to The Office and, most recently, The Hangover, have boosted his star power. We’ll see what happens with Central Intelligence. For Parisot, it’ll be his first movie since 2005’s Fun With Dick and Jane which, incredibly, made over $110 million domestic.
