In a recent interview Neighbors director Nicholas Stoller leaked that he may soon be working on a new “buddy comedy” starring Philly’s Kevin Hart and Seth Rogen. Here’s what he said in an interview with Slashfilm:
The next thing I want to direct is this thing for Seth [Rogen] and Kevin Hart. It’s basically about the first white cop black cop pairing in history. That takes place in the late ’40s and they have to bust jazz musicians for weed. It’s kind of a Baz Luhrman world mixed with Tarantino shit. It’s a lot of things.
The yet-to-be-titled flick was written by former Late Show With David Letterman writer Rodney Rothman (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek.)
