Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart Sign Up for Untitled Police Comedy

Actors sign up for buddy cop comedy.

THR reports that ‘The Green Hornet’ star Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart (‘Think Like A Man,’ ‘The Five-Year Engagement’) are attached to lead an untitled action-comedy for Paramount Pictures.

Aiming to be the “original” buddy cop comedy, the film sees Rogen and Hart playing the first (fictional) interracial cop duo in a story set post-World War II, in the late 1940s. The partners go undercover in the jazz scene to bust up a ring involving marijuana.

The comedy is based on a pitch by Rodney Rothman, who will now pen the screenplay. Rothman, Rogen, Hart and Evan Goldberg will produce.
