Dave Bautista is a "vengeful cop" who gets Kumail Nanjiani to drive him around LA for VENGEANCE (i.e. buddy/action/comedy movie).
Early word from SXSW looks promising:
'Stuber': Film Review | SXSW 2019
SXSW Film Review: ‘Stuber’
'Stuber' Work-In-Progress Screening: Put Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista In Everything, You Cowards [SXSW]
I like the sound of this approach too:
One other detail that differentiates “Stuber” from your average action-comedy: The movie embraces the real-world physics of gunplay, car crashes, and hand-to-hand combat — obviously bent for both dramatic and comedic effect. People die, often and quite brutally, while the characters attempt to pull off tricks they’ve seen in other action movies, frequently with far different results.
