Hart, Cube Go On A “Ride Along”

Universal Pictures has acquired “Ride Along” out of turnaround from New Line and is turning it into a Kevin Hart and Ice Cube vehicle reports Deadline.

Hart will play a second-grade teacher who must survive a Training Day-like ride-along experience with his fiancee’s tough cop brother who doesn’t want the marriage to happen and tries to scare off the suitor.

Tim Story will helm from a script that is presently undergoing a rewrite from scribes Matt Manfredi & Phil Hay. Shooting aims to kick off in October.
