Seth Rogen, Kevin Hart to team for 1940′s buddy-cop comedy

Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart (“Scary Movie 3″) will team for a new Buddy-Cop comedy in development at Paramount.

The Rodney Rothman-written script will “be the “original” buddy cop comedy by having Rogen and Hart be the first white and black cop duo in a story set post-World War II, in the late 1940s. The pair go undercover in the jazz scene to bust up a ring involving marijuana (no surprise there, since Rogen is involved.” says THR.

Writer Rothman previously worked on “Freaks & Geeks”, of which Rogen was a star on, so should be a good flick.
