Ice Cube as a hot-tempered cop and Kevin Hart as a fast-talking dude in a brand new action comedy titled Ride Along? Sure, why not, we’re ready to take a look! Hope you’re interested too, ’cause we have the very first teaser trailer and images from the whole thing. Doesn’t look bad at all, give them a try!
Think Like a Man helmer Tim Story directed the pic from a script written by Greg Coolidge, which revolves around a fast-talking security guard Ben who joins his cop brother-in-law James on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta in order to prove himself worthy of marrying James’ sister Angela.
As we mentioned at the beginning, Cube plays James, Hart is fast-talking Ben, while Tika Sumpter stars as Cube’s sister Angela. The rest of the cast looks pretty cool, too, and includes John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill, Bryan Callen and Laurence Fishburne.
In case you want to read the official synopsis:
For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben has been trying to show decorated APD detective James that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela. When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela. Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it.
Believe it or not, but Ride Along is already set to hit theaters on January 17th, 2014. Yep, that means we’ll soon have even more updates to share, so make sure you stay tuned!
