Kevin Hart will star alongside Seth Rogen in an upcoming comedy film.
Paramount has recently acquired the untitled buddy cop movie with the actors attached to it. The two comedic stars will play the first interracial police partnership, in a plot set in the late 1940s when the mere thought of black and white cop partners didn’t exist. In the script, the duo go undercover in the jazz scene to bust a big marijuana ring.
Rogen and his business partner Evan Goldberg will produce along with Rodney Rothman. Rothman, who worked with Seth Rogen in the past, will write the script. The writer’s credits include him being a producer on the comedy smash Get Him to the Greek.
Hart can be currently seen in the Screen Gems’ comedy movie Think Like a Man and he also co-stars in The Five-Year Engagement.
