Ferrell & Hart Shooting "Hard" in New Orleans

Updated 1 year ago
Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart join forces on the feature comedy “Get Hard,” which has began filming on location in New Orleans , for director Etan Cohen.

When millionaire hedge fund manager James King (Ferrell) is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order.  Desperate, he turns to Darnell Lewis (Hart) to prep him for a life behind bars.  But despite James’ one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison.  Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to ‘get hard’ and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things – including each other. 

The film also stars Craig T. Nelson, Alison Brie, and rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris.

Cohen marks his feature directorial debut with “Get Hard,” following a successful writing career, with credits including “Tropic Thunder.”

The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Tim Suhrstedt (“Little Miss Sunshine”); production designer Maher Ahmad (“The Hangover Part III”); editor Michael Sale (“We’re the Millers”); and costume designer Shay Cunliffe (“The Bourne Legacy”). 
 
“Get Hard” is scheduled to open nationwide on Friday, March 27, 2015.
