Kevin Smith & Couple of Dicks

ERC Box Office is reporting that Kevin Smith has signed on to a Warner Brothers production titled "Couple of Dicks." Smith will direct and for the first time, in a feature film, be working from a script he did not write. "Couple of Dicks" has Bruce Willis and Tracey Morgan set to star in the 2008 Black List script written by Robb and Marc Cullen. "Couple of Dicks" is said to follow "two veteran LAPD detectives attempt to track down a stolen, mint-condition, 1952 baseball card." The film is set to release January 29th, 2010.

This isn't the first time Smith has worked with either Tracey Morgan or Bruce Willis, so the chemistry should be solid between them. This is the first time Smith is directing something other than his own work. Hopefully Smith will be adding a bit of his own flare to the script, and with the title of "Couple of Dicks," one wouldn't doubt Smith's typical dick jokes aren't far off.

Kevin Smith may be working with a major studio in hopes that they send a little love his way in the future. Smith who has been trying to get financing for his horror film "Red State" could be working a deal with WB to help get his self-proclaimed "unmarketable" film made. Smith has remained adamant about making Red State on the cheap, but with lunchbox reaching out to major studios, he could be uping the ante. At least for now, it's gonna be awhile before Smith fan's get "Red State".

What say you? Is a buddy comedy with Willis and Morgan directed by Smith worth admission? Strikeback....
