20th Century Fox has released a new Let’s Be Cops red-band trailer for director Luke Greenfield’s (The Girl Next Door) upcoming comedy.  The film stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms and a car purchased on eBay, but in the midst of all their fun they run into trouble with a dangerous Russian mobster.  I still haven’t really seen anything from the pic that makes it stand out as anything other than a pretty standard buddy cop comedy, but Johnson and Wayans Jr. are very funny guys who have terrific chemistry on New Girl, so hopefully that charisma makes the full feature worthwhile.

Hit the jump to watch the new Let’s Be Cops red-band trailer.  The film also stars Nina DobrevRob RiggleJames D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael Key.  Let’s Be Cops opens August 13th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Let’s Be Cops:

It’s the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they’re not cops. When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real-life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
