Director Nicholas Stoller’s latest film, Neighbors, opens in theaters this weekend, and while tackling the divide between a fraternity and their thirtysomething neighbors certainly provides plenty of comedic material, Stoller’s planned next film offers a unique avenue to explore.  Tentatively titled Black and White, the comedy would star Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart as the first white cop/black cop pairing in history, with the story taking place in the 1940s. We previously spoke with Stoller about the film and he was very enthusiastic about the prospect of it being his next feature, and when Steve recently sat down with producers Evan Goldberg and James Weaver in anticipation of Neighbors, the duo also discussed Black and White.  Goldberg noted that the setting and premise gives them “a free pass to be racist”, as they’re able to tackle race-centered jokes because the film is about how terrible racism is. »
