Will Ferrell seeks a quick education about prison so he turns to Kevin Hart in the first trailer for the upcoming comedy Get Hard.
Ferrell is millionaire hedge fund manager James King. However he is also a white collar criminal. When a judge sentences him to serve a 10-year prison stint Ferrell immediately seeks guidance on how he can possibly get through his incarceration. Ferrell’s character makes the stereotypical assumption that all black men have gone to prison and turns to the only black guy he has contact with, Kevin Hart. However Hart’s character has never been to prison and is a hard-working “small” business owner that runs a car detailing company. Hart has only 30 days to prepare the one percenter for his jail sentence at San Quentin State Prison by turning his lavish mansion into a mock penitentiary.
The film also stars Alison Brie, Jay Pharoah, Edwina Findley, Craig T. Nelson and T.I.
Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen makes his feature directorial debut.
Get Hard hits theaters on March 27, 2015.
