Rogen and Hart to play “first” interracial police team

Here comes fun. Seth Rogen is confirmed to star opposite Kevin Hart in a buddy cop film about the first ever interracial police partnership, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The pitch by screenwriter Rodney Rothman (Late Show with David Letterman) has been acquired by Paramount Pictures.

Rothman and Rogen have worked previously together on the television series Undeclared, and Rothman is a Judd Apatow alumnus, having played producer on Get Him to the Greek and Five-Year Engagement.

In order for Rogen and Hart to be the first ever (fictional) interracial cop duo, the film will take place in the late 1940s following the Second World War. The pair will go undercover in the jazz scene to infiltrate a marijuana drug ring and hilarity will no doubt ensue.

The premise sounds sketchy but if the screenplay is solid there’s no doubt that Rogen and Hart can deliver the laughs.
