According to an initial report from Variety:
The story begins with a class reunion approaching, as a former high school sports star turned accountant (Hart) is contacted by a classmate (Johnson) who was bullied and humiliated back in the day. The “loser” that the accountant remembers is now a CIA contract killer who ropes him into helping foil a plot to sell classified military secrets.
Hart recently shared a photo of the two “hardest workers in Hollywood” from the set, revealing that production for the buddy-action film has begun.
