A sort of comedic Training Day, the story centers on a risk-averse second-grade teacher plans on marrying the girl of his dreams but first must accompany his overprotective future brother-in-law, a tough cop, on a ride-along from hell.
Leguizamo will play an undercover cop in the story and will probably bring us some memorable laughs in scenes with Kevin Hart.
Tim Story is directing the project, which is being produced by Cube and his CubeVision partner Matt Alvarez as well as Larry Brezner and William Packer.
Leguizamo recently wrapped shooting The Counselor, Ridley Scott’s all-star drug drama with Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem in the cast and is currently shooting Kick-Ass 2.
