Martin Lawrence looks to be gearing up for his return to theaters. According to IMDB, the last time we saw Lawrence in a film was when he starred in 2011’s Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son. Now in a new film with the Wilson brothers; Martin is set to play a prisoner who has some advice in the comedy which is set to begin filming in July.
Borat director Larry Charles and the Wilson brothers are teaming up on a broad comedy that will co-star Martin Lawrence. Luke Wilson will star as Howie Summers, a man, falsely accused of a bank robbery, who, thanks to his criminally incompetent lawyer (Owen Wilson) finds himself serving a life sentence in prison. On the advice of his cellmate Slick (Lawrence), he finds a wife on the outside and marries the seemingly sweet, demure woman. When, shortly afterwards, Howie is exonerated, he suddenly finds himself married to a woman he barely knows.
