Happy times are ahead y’all! Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are in talks to take the leads in a new movie titled Get Hard (OMG… why, lol) and I’m pretty excited. If this actually happens and that Bored To Death movie happens, pretty much all of my comedy movie dreams will have come true. Because I totally have comedy movie dreams. Click inside for more!
Deadline Hollywood has the deets:
Warner Bros is negotiating to acquire Get Hard, a comedy pitch package that will be developed as a star vehicle for Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. The plan is for Ferrell to play a rich, soft-handed investment bank manager who is sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime he didn’t commit. He hires the streetwise guy who normally washes his car to get him ready to do hard time in the 30 days before he has to report to prison.
The script will be written by Ian Roberts & Jay Martel, who are currently executive producers and showrunners on Comedy Central’s Key & Peele.
Now the truth is, I haven’t seen a Will Ferrell movie that I totally lurved in a while, but I’m still excited for this. And Kevin Hart is just, like, my favorite. Well, there’s also Rickey Smiley… but Kevin’s pretty awesome too. Anybody else excited for this one?
LMAO! Indiewire shared this clip with the news. This was def the first time I saw Kevin Hart on the big screen!
