It’s rarely a bad idea to cast John Leguizamo in a film, something director Tim Story (Think Like a Man) seems to have realised, as Variety reports he’s busy signing the actor to join the cast of Ride Along.
The movie is about a hard-nosed cop (Ice Cube) who is extremely protective of his sister. When her new boyfriend (Kevin Hart) wants to marry her, he is taken on a police ride-along to prove himself to his future brother-in-law. John Leguizamo will play an undercover cop in the comedy.
Greg Coolidge wrote the screenplay, based on an earlier draft by Steve Faber and Bob Fisher (Wedding Crashers). It isn’t known when the movie will go into production.
