Deadline's reporting that Warner Bros Pictures is looking to pick up the comedy pitch Get Hard. The movie's supposedly going to star Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, with Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions on board to produce.
According to Deadline, Ferrell would play a banker sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit. Hart would play a guy Ferrell hires to teach him how to handle himself in maximum security prison before he goes off to jail.
The executive producers of Key & Peele - Jay Martel and Ian Roberts - will write the script.
Ferrell was last seen on the big screen in The Campaign and recently wrapped up work on The Internship with Vince Vaughn. Next up is Anchorman 2. Hart is working on the action comedy Ride Along and has School Dance, The End of the World, and About Last Night coming out next year.
