While Katt Williams continues to act a fool, another Black comedian is making power moves in Hollywood. Warner Bros. is looking acquire a comedy film called Get Hard, that may potentially star Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell.
Deadline reports that the premise of the film is Ferrell playing milquetoast investment bank manager who is facing prison time in a maximum security prison. He then hires a “streetwise guy,” that would be Hart, to prepare him for a bid that’s set to start in a month’s time. The film’s script writers will be Ian Roberts and Jay Martel, the executive producers and showrunners of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele.
A movie that is definitely on Hart’s schedule is called Ride Along which he is co-starring in with Ice Cube. Currently shooting, the film is billed as a comedic version of Training Day and is set to premiere on January 17th, 2014.
Kevin Hart is currently on his Let Me Explain stand-up tour and its next stop is Minneapolis on December 14th.
