Kevin Smith is stepping away from the indie scene to direct A Couple of Dicks for Warner Brothers with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan starring. The script was written by Robb and Marc Cullen, and marks the first time that Smith will be directing a feature film from a script he didn’t write. Last year, he directed the pilot episode of Reaper for the CW from someone’s elses script. I’m glad to see Smith expanding his horizon and trying some new stuff.
Dicks features Willis and Morgan as a pair of LAPD detectives who are trying to locate a mint-condition baseball card that was stolen. The studio is aiming for a January 29th, 2010 release.
