Warner Bros. wants Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart to Get Hard

Dec. 7, 2012by:

My article title lends itself to some disturbing imagery, doesn't it? But it was asking for it.

Warner Brothers are after Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart for a comedy called GET HARD.

The film will be scripted by Ian Roberts and Jay Martel, who are currently executive producers and showrunners for KEY & PEELE. GET HARD will star Ferrell as, "a rich, soft-handed investment bank manager is sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime he didnt 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."

If you haven't caught any of Hart's stand-up, I suggest you do so. He's one of the funnier, more energetic comedians around. Ferrell is currently filming on ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND CONTINUES. Hart's last film was THINK LIKE A MAN.

Imagine the twist that Hart was the investment banker and Ferrell was the streetwise guy, he could channel Gator from The Other Guys!!!

That sounds infinitely more entertaining than the other way around.

Big Stan

almost to a T. but I guess since everyone hates Rob Schneider and didn't see it, they think this is ok?
and I'm sorry, I'm not looking to start a fight, but I can't stand Kevin Hart.

Ugh

My interest was fading with Kevin Hart and then you lost me completely with Key & Peele. Terrible... just terrible.

Glad someone mentioned Big Stan, and I guess I'm turning into an old fuddy duddy because this just seems like its going to be immature and racist

I like both actors so ill give this a look eventually but I will say that chroniC2805's idea of swapping the roles sounds like it'd be much funnier

I hate that Kevin Hart is popular. He's basically Chris Tucker just minus the funny parts.

Chris Tucker's one film (Friday) and even the annoying and terrible screaming nonsense he's done in pretty much every increasingly bad film since are still eons more tolerable then anything Kevin Hart has ever done, said, or smelt. This guy has been terrible for years now (the brilliant Soul Plane was 8 years ago). I'm frankly shocked you manage to squeeze the phrase "taste in comedy" and "Kevin Hart is funny" into the same argument. And with a straight face no less. Bravo

You have very poor taste in what's funny. Chris Tucker did one film (Friday) that made him look funny, the rest were garbage. And TWO, Kevin Hart actually does great stand-up comedy and is somewhat funny on the big screen.

I'll take a mediocre Kevin Hart over a completely not-funny Chris Tucker any day.

Nothing to do with this news, but...

No news of the rumor about Ferrell being the next Franck Drebin in a Naked Fun reboot ?
