Johnson, Jackson and Coogan Join Other Guys


Dwayne Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson and Steve Coogan will star in the Columbia Pictures comedy The Other Guys, to be directed by Adam McKay.

Johnson and Jackson will play super cops in the film. Coogan is set as the villain. They join the previously-announced Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton and Damon Wayans Jr.

Johnson and Jackson will play an elite cop tandem whose exploits are the envy of the department and the second-tier fellow cops played by Ferrell and Wahlberg.

The movie was written by Chris Henchy and McKay.
