Will Ferrell's comedy Get Hard has taken another step forwards after Etan Cohen was signed up to direct.

The movie - which follows a wealthy investment bank manager who is convicted of a crime he didn't commit and who asks the man who washes his car to help him prepare for prison - has been in the pipeline for some time.

Now Variety has reported that Etan, the man who penned Tropic Thunder, will be at the helm.

Anchorman star Will - who will also produce through his Gary Sanchez banner - is to play the bank manager and Kevin Hart has been cast as the man who washes his car.
