The above still has been released for Kevin Smith’s upcoming film “Cop Out.” This film will mark the first time that Kevin Smith directs a movie that he has not written himself. It will star Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as two NYDP cops. See the press release below, as well as the first official trailer.
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 (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy 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 stars Bruce Willis (the “Die Hard” films), Tracy Morgan (TV’s “30 Rock”), Adam Brody (“Mr. & Mrs. Smith”), Kevin Pollak (“Tropic Thunder”), Guillermo Diaz (TV’s “Weeds”) and Seann William Scott (“Role Models”).
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 A. Klein (“Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” “Chasing Amy”); production designer Michael Shaw (“August Rush,” “Boys Don’t Cry”); costume designer Juliet Polcsa (“The Sopranos,” “Jersey Girl”); and Academy Award®-nominated composer Harold Faltermeyer (the “Beverly Hills Cop” movies). As he frequently does, Smith serves as his own editor on the film.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, A Marc Platt Production, “Cop Out,” to be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film is scheduled for release on February 26, 2010.
