Variety is reporting that Dean Parisot is going to direct Universal's Central Intelligence.

Ed Helms is going to star in this film.

In the film an accountant (Helms) gets in touch with an old friend through Facebook, "and his life is engulfed by the world of international espionage." Universal is now looking to cast Helms' long-lost friend.

Central Intelligence was penned by Ike Barinholtz and Dave Stassen.

This will be Parisot's first film since 2005's Fun With Dick and Jane.
