Will Ferrell has got a new comedy up his sleeve and for this one he’s teaming up with Kevin Hart, as Deadline reports that they’ve both signed on to star in Get Hard for Warner Bros.
The movie is about a wealthy investment banker (Ferrell) who gets sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime that he didn’t commit (in movie land, nobody get locked up for something they actually did). He enlists the help of the man who usually washes his car (Kevin Hart), in order to prepare him for doing hard time before he has to report to prison in 30 days.
Ian Roberts and Ian Roberts, who serve as executive producers and showrunners on Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, wrote the screenplay, with Gary Sanchez attached to produce. The project does not have a director attached as of yet.
