Universal won’t start production this spring on Central Intelligence, the comedy that had The Office‘s Ed Helms starring and Dean Parisot directing. Rumors raced yesterday that the film was scrapped. Insiders insist that isn’t so. I’ve learned the comedy won’t likely come before Helms reprises in The Hangover sequel, giving Universal time to sort things out.
