Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan have signed on to star in Warner Bros.' detective comedy A Couple of Cops, marking director Kevin Smith's first major studio project.

According to Variety, Marc Platt is producing the project, formerly titled A Couple of Dicks. The scripting team of Robb and Marc Cullen penned the screenplay, centered on a pair of cops who track down a stolen baseball card, rescue a Mexican beauty and must deal with gangsters and laundered drug money.

Warner picked up the project in turnaround last year from Gold Circle, where it had been in development with Robin Williams and James Gandolfini in the lead roles.

No production date has been set.
