Alison Brie has signed on to join Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart in GET HARD, the story of a rich, soft-handed bank manager (Ferrell) who is sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime he didn’t commit and hires the streetwise guy who normally washes his car (Hart) to get him ready to do hard time in the 30 days before he has to report to prison. Brie will play the fiancee of Ferrell’s character.
Etan Cohen will be directing the comedy from the script written by Ian Roberts and Jay Martel and it is being produced by Ferrell’s, Gary Sanchez Productions.
This is great news as Brie is a wonderful actress with amazing comedic timing. The logline had me in the seat to begin with, and now with three of the most talented comedians working in the industry attached, this one is a no brainer.
Brie is best known for her television work on “Mad Men” and “Community” and can be seen on the big screen in the upcoming “Search Party.”
She is repped by WME and Velocity Entertainment.
