- Official stuff directly from Warner Bros. has started to arrive here at the News Askew office, which we’ll continue to pass on in the coming weeks. With a release just a bit over a month from now, we should start seeing TV ads, perhaps another trailer (they sometimes will cut more than one, ya know), and more — For now, here’s a nice look at the film’s logo, which arrived attached to this nifty little press release: Directed by Kevin Smith (Zack and Miri Make a Porno), Cop Out features two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card who find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his partner-against-crime whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball. Kevin Smith directs Cop Out from a screenplay by Robb Cullen & Mark Cullen (TV’s Las Vegas). The film stars Bruce Willis (the Die Hard films), Tracy Morgan (TV’s 30 Rock), Adam Brody (Mr. & Mrs. Smith), Kevin Pollak (Tropic Thunder), Guillermo Diaz (TV’s Weeds) and Seann William Scott (Role Models). The film is produced by Marc Platt (Rachel Getting Married), Polly Johnsen (upcoming Cats and Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore) and Michael Tadross (I Am Legend, Hitch). Adam Siegel (Wanted), Robb Cullen and Mark Cullen serve as executive producers. The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography David A. Klein (Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Chasing Amy); production designer Michael Shaw (August Rush, Boys Don’t Cry); costume designer Juliet Polcsa (The Sopranos, Jersey Girl); and Academy Award®-nominated composer Harold Faltermeyer (the Beverly Hills Cop movies). As he frequently does, Smith serves as his own editor on the film. Warner Bros. Pictures presents, A Marc Platt Production, Cop Out, to be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film is scheduled for release on February 26, 2010.
