Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart will star in an untitled period action comedy project at Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story aims to be the “original” buddy cop comedy by having Rogen and Hart be the first white and black cop duo in a story set post-World War II, in the late 1940s. The pair go undercover in the jazz scene to bust up a ring involving marijuana.
Rodney Rothman sold the pitch to the studio and is now writing the script. Rothman, Rogen and Evan Goldberg will produce.
