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.
