We discovered from our sources that comedian and actor Affion Crockett, who will be seen in the upcoming David E Talbert film Baggage Claim, has just joined the new Kevin Hart / Josh Gad film tentatively titled The Wedding Ringer. We even discovered – and reported a week ago-Crockett is simultaneously filming A Haunted House 2 with Marlon Wayans which is due out March 2014.
If you are not familiar with the film, it has Hart as a best-man-for-hire who helps out a socially awkward man (Josh Gad) his services to be his friend as he finds himself without a best man. He makes up not only a best man, but nine groomsmen, and eventually seeks out Jimmy’s help to create his fictional friends.
The film from Screen Gems and Miramax is currently in pre-production and will be filming is the next couple of weeks.
The film was written by Jeremy Garelick (The Break-Up, Police Academy) and Jay Lavender (The Break-Up), with the Garelick set to direct.
More info coming soon.
