Warner Bros. casts Bruce Willis (Surrogates), Seann William Scott (The Rundown) and Tracy Morgan (TV’s 30 Rock) in the new buddy comedy Cop Out.
Directed by Kevin Smith (Zack and Miri Make a Porno), Cop Out features two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card who find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Morgan) is his "partner-against-crime" whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.
Kevin Smith directs Cop Out from a screenplay by Robb Cullen & Mark Cullen (TV’s Las Vegas). The film also stars Adam Brody (Mr. & Mrs. Smith), Kevin Pollak (Tropic Thunder) and Guillermo Diaz (TV’s Weeds).
The film is produced by Marc Platt (Rachel Getting Married), Polly Johnsen (upcoming Cats and Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore) and Michael Tadross (I Am Legend, Hitch). Adam Siegel (Wanted), Robb Cullen and Mark Cullen serve as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography David Klein; production designer Michael Shaw; costume designer Juliet Polcsa; and Academy Award®-nominated composer Harold Faltermeyer. As he frequently does, Smith serves as his own editor on the film.
Opening in Philippine cinemas starting March 3, Cop Out is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
