Will Ferrell to ‘Get Hard’ with Kevin Hart
It’s not what it sounds like, we swear. Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are attached to star in the new film ‘Get Hard,’ which Warner Bros. is in talks to buy because Will Ferrell is basically a vending machine for money.
Deadline reports that Warner Bros. are currently in talks to acquire the new comedy ‘Get Hard,’ which comes with stars Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart already attached. And that’s just logic, guys — it’s like buying a car with wheels attached to it. It’s just a thing you do.
Ferrell will play a wealthy and kind investment banker (see — money!) who is wrongly accused of a crime he didn’t commit and subsequently sentenced to a maximum security prison. To prepare for his time in the slammer, he hires the guy who washes his car (Hart) to teach him how to get hard so he can deal with all those rough-and-tumble criminal types behind bars, but they only have 30 days to take him from softie to toughie.
The script will be penned by Ian Roberts and Jay Martel, the executive producers and showrunners of the hilarious Comedy Central series ‘Key & Peele.’ As always, Ferrell’s production company Gary Sanchez is attached to produce.
