Stars to headline comedy.
Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are attached to headline ‘Get Hard,’ a comedy feature that will be written by Ian Roberts & Jay Martel (‘Key & Peele’).
Deadline says the film would see Ferrell playing 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 project will be produced by Ferrell and Adam McKay via their Gary Sanchez banner.
