The film is directed by Tim Story (Fantastic Four, Barbershop) and stars Kevin Hart, Ice Cube, John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill, Laurence Fishburne, Tika Sumpter, Bryan Callen and Jay Pharoah. The movie centers around a high school security guard and aspiring police officer who must survive a nightmarish 24-hour patrol “ride along” with his fiancee’s cop brother who disapproves of the marriage. Ice Cube and Matt Alvarez (Are We There Yet?) are producing the project for CubeVision, alongside Will Packer (Obsessed, Stomp the Yard) for Rainforest Films and Larry Brezner (Arthur, The ‘Burbs). Lennertz has previously collaborated with Story on last year’s hit comedy Think Like a Man. Free Ride is set to be released nationwide on January 17, 2014 by Universal Pictures.

Lennertz who recently scored the year’s top-grossing comedy Identity Thief for Universal is currently also scoring the final episodes of the first season of NBC’s hit drama Revolution, which has just been renewed for a second season.
