20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for director Luke Greenfield’s (The Girl Next Door) comedy Let’s Be Cops. 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. This debut red-band trailer does a nice job of selling the comedy and chemistry of Johnson and Wayans Jr., who have shined on TV with standout roles in New Girl and Happy Endings, respectively (and now both are on New Girl). The plot is mostly in the background and it remains to be seen whether it’s strong enough to carry the story to feature length, but for now the movie looks to be quite funny.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Nina Dobrev, Rob Riggle, James D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael Key. Let’s Be Cops opens August 13th.
