The Kevin Hart/Josh Gad untitled comedy from Screen Gems/Miramax and first-timer Jeremy Garelick, produced by Will Packer, now has an official title. 

It'll be called The Wedding Ringer.

In the comedy, Hart plays a charismatic guy who provides best man services for socially-challenged guys, who can’t get anyone to stand by them on their wedding days. 

Gad plays a groom-to-be, who finds himself in need of Hart's services. Of course, all doesn't work out exactly as planned, as hijinx and hilarity ensue.

Affion Crockett also appears in the film, playing a groomsman for hire.

Production has begun in Los Angeles on the project which also features Jenifer Lewis, Corey Holcomb, Kaley Cuoco, Jorge Garcia, Dan Gill, Corey Holcomb, Ken Howard, Colin Kane, Cloris Leachman, Alan Ritchson, Mimi Rogers, Ignacio Serricchio, Aaron Takahashi, Olivia Thirlby and Nicky Whelan

Jeremy Garelick is directing from a screenplay he penned with Jay Lavender.

Miramax’s Adam Fields is co-producing along with Will Packer. Screen Gems’ President, Clint Culpepper, is overseeing the project on behalf of Screen Gems.

Look for The Wedding Ringer in 2014 most likely.
