Kevin Smith gets an additional "Couple of Dicks"

The cast is coming together nicely, according to this in The Hollywood Reporter:

Seann William Scott and Adam Brody are joining Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan in Warner Bros.' "A Couple of Dicks," a buddy action comedy being directed by Kevin Smith.The script, by Robb and Mark Cullen, follows a maverick cop (Willis) and his partner (Morgan) who, while tracking a valuable stolen baseball card, tangle with a memorabilia-obsessed gangster and rescue a Mexican beauty who holds the key to millions in laundered drug money. Scott plays a thief known as the Shit Bandit for the souvenirs he leaves at his robberies. Brody is an abrasive detective not happy to be working with Willis and Morgan. Shooting begins Monday in New York. Marc Platt and Polly Johnsen are producing. Sarah Schechter and Matthew Milam are overseeing for the studio.Scott, repped by CAA, recently starred in Universal's "Role Models" and will next be heard in Fox's sequel "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs." Endeavor-repped Brody next appears in Boaz Yakin's indie drama "Death in Love" then in "Jennifer's Body," a Diablo Cody-penned dark comedy starring Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried.
-I like both of these actors, and dig Kevin Smith, so this film is looking very good to me...what about you?


  1. Adam Brody cracks me up.


  2. This could be a very 80's feeling movie...and that's a good thing!

  3. very much in agreement there...Kevin Smith might have a hard time not making this very good

  4. I love everything he does, but this new direction seems very cool as well...I'll be keeping a close eye on this

  5. wonder if this will be like an even funnier Die Hard?
