The Warner Bros comedy, Get Hard, starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, from Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen, finally has a release date; but you’ll have to wait a year for it: March 27, 2015.
In Get Hard, Ferrell plays a rich, effete investment banker who is sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime he didn’t commit. 30 days before he begins his sentence, he hires a “streetwise guy” (played by Kevin Hart) to prep him/toughen him up for his time in prison – hence the title.
The script was penned by Ian Roberts & Jay Martel, who are executive producers and show-runners on Comedy Central’s Key & Peele.
Gary Sanchez is producer.
We’ve already documented Hart’s rising star well enough on this blog, and the million projects on his slate, both on the big and small screen.
It’s race between Hart, Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson for hardest working actor in the business.
