WB adds pair for ‘Dicks’

Jason Lee and Michelle Trachtenberg have joined the cast of Warner Bros. cop comedy “A Couple of Dicks,” starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. Kevin Smith is directing.

Marc Platt’s producing the project with Polly Johnsen and Michael Tadross. The scripting team of Robb and Marc Cullen penned the screenplay, centered on a pair of cops who track down a stolen baseball card, rescue a Mexican beauty and must deal with gangsters and laundered drug money.

Trachtenberg will play the daughter of Willis’ character, and Lee will portray her stepfather.

Warner picked up the project in turnaround last year from Gold Circle, where it had been in development with Robin Williams and James Gandolfini in the lead roles. Seann William Scott and Adam Brody are also starring.

Lee toplines “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel.” Trachtenberg was last seen in “17 Again.”
