Kevin Smith To Direct Bruce Willis/Tracy Morgan Studio Buddy Comedy A COUPLE OF COPS!!

I am – Hercules!!
The writer-director behind the “Clerks” movies and “Zack and Miri Make A Porno” is making the leap to big-deal studio filmmaking. Kevin Smith will direct “Live Free Or Die Hard” co-star Bruce Willis and “30 Rock” icon Tracy Morgan in the Warner Bros. buddy comedy “A Couple of Cops,” scripted by TV writers Marc & Robb Cullen (“Lucky,” “Gary The Rat,” “Heist,” “Las Vegas”). It's the first feature Smith will direct that he didn’t write himself and the first Smith directorial effort released by a major studio. Variety describes the premise:
[The project centers 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.
That sounds so bad Judd Apatow couldn’t fix it! It clouds my brain with memories of madcap "Whole Ten Yards" hijinks. I remember a lot of people liked FX’s “Lucky,” but I’ve described the Cullen boys’ 2006 NBC Dougray Scott vehicle “Heist” as one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. Find all of Variety’s story on the matter here.
