There is no way this won’t be an absolute blast of a movie. Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan teaming up for a Kevin Smith comedy entitled Couple of Dicks. The plot is, as yet, unrevealed but we have to believe they’re going to be a pair of detectives in order to get away with the title. It’s a Warner Bros. picture, which is a departure for the normally Miramax-indie director, and what’s also interesting is that Smith isn’t one of the writers, and he’s written all of his films to date. This time, he’s working from a Robb and Marc Cullen script. Smith focusing on directing instead of writing will likely be good for the guy, as he’s publicly said he only became a director to get his scripts made.
Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. Two of the craziest, strangest and goofiest guys out there in the same movie, being crazy, strange and goofy. This brings us one step closer to my ultimate goal – a buddy cop movie starring LL Cool J and Billy Idol.
EDIT: Here’s an update – Gone is the ‘Dicks’ in the title. It’s now called A Couple of Cops, and it’s about, natch, a pair of cops who “track down a stolen baseball card, rescue a Mexican beauty and must deal with gangsters and laundered drug money.” Any chance that Mexican beauty could be Morgan’s 30 Rock co-star Salma Hayek? Stay tuned!
Check out the fun factors that will be going into Couple of Dicks.
