Marlon Wayans to star in new action-comedy Ride or Die

According to The Hollywood Reporter, White Chicks star Marlon Wayans has officially set up his next film with the forthcoming buddy-cop romantic comedy titled Ride or Die, which is being likened to When Harry Met Sally but with guns. Neal H. Moritz (Sonic the Hedgehog, Bloodshot) has also signed on to produce the project through his Original Film banner.

“Rick and I conceived this as a franchise and collaborating with Neal, who has mastered the art of franchises, makes it a perfect fit,” Wayans said in a statement.

Ride or Die will follow the story of robbery detective Martin Banks, a consummate professional, and narcotics detective and unapologetic butt-kicker Tami Moore. Sparks and bullets fly when these opposites are partnered to track down a billion-dollar cache of deadly opioids stolen from the vault of a multinational pharmaceutical company that threaten to flood the streets of Chicago.

Moritz added, “I was lucky enough to get a chance to read this script early … and I had to jump on it … rarely do you read scripts with such a great concept and relationship.”

In addition to starring in the film, Wayans had also co-wrote the screenplay with frequent collaborator Rick Alvarez, who are also set as producers through their Ugly Baby banner. It will also be produced by Toby Ascher of Original Film.
