Warner Bros has slotted the Etan Cohen-directed comedy Get Hard for March 27, 2015. Will Ferrell stars as a rich, soft-handed investment bank manager who is sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime he didn’t commit. He hires the streetwise guy who normally washes his car to get him ready to do hard time in the 30 days before he has to report. Kevin Hart co-stars. Get Hard will go up against Fox’s animated pic The Penguins Of Madagascar and Sony/Columbia’s sci-fi actioner Chappie.
