Willis, Morgan to play ‘Cops’

Kevin Smith to direct film for Warner Bros.

Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan will star in Warner Bros.’ detective comedy “A Couple of Cops,” with Kevin Smith directing his first major studio pic.

Marc Platt’s producing the project, formerly titled “A Couple of Dicks.” 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.

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.

Willis will next be seen in Disney sci-fi thriller “The Surrogates,” directed by Jonathan Mostow. “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star Morgan has been set for a remake of “Death at a Funeral” for Screen Gems and Sidney Kimmel.

Smith directed “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” last year for the Weinstein Co.
