Damon Wayans Jr. has decided to further follow in his dad’s footsteps by playing a comedian we’re also supposed to find believable as an action hero. He’ll join New Girl’s Jake Johnson in Let’s Be Cops. The plot details revolve around two guys who decide to be cops. What happens from there? Hijinks, dummy.
The film will be directed by The Girl Next Door’s Luke Greenfield from a script he wrote with Nick Thomas. Casting is still underway for the other roles, including a mobster who the guys unwittingly mess with while impersonating police officers. We’ll let you know when Ray Liotta is cast in that role.
