Ferrell will also produce the comedy.
Screenwriter Etan Cohen (‘Men in Black III,’ ‘Tropic Thunder,’ ‘Idiocracy’) is set to step behind the camera to direct the Warner Bros. comedy ‘Get Hard,’ reports Variety.
With Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart headlining, the comedy follows “a wealthy investment bank manager who is convicted of a crime he did not commit and prepares for prison with help from the guy who washes his car.”
Cohen will be directing the movie from a screenplay by Ian Roberts & Jay Martel (‘Key & Peele’). Ferrell will also serve as producer on the project with Adam McKay via their Gary Sanchez banner.
