Two frequent comedy scene-stealers are teaming up to headline a film of their own. Josh Gad (Love & Other Drugs) and Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man) have been set to star in an untitled buddy comedy for Screen Gems and Miramax, per Deadline. Hart will play a charismatic guy who provides Best Man services for socially challenged gentlemen that have trouble finding Best Men of their own. Gad will play a man who seeks out Hart’s services, but he creates an even bigger problem by lying about the names of nine other groomsmen along with his Best Man. The two then proceed with carrying out the wedding rouse.
Jeremy Garelick, who scripted the film alongside Jay Lavender, will make his directorial debut on the project. Garelick previously co-wrote the 2006 film The Break Up. After wowing audiences on Broadway in Book of Mormon, Gad landed his own TV show with NBC’s recently cancelled 1600 Penn. He’s a consistent comedic talent and should make for a strong pairing with the very sharp Hart, who stars alongside Ice Cube in the upcoming cop comedy Ride Along.
