Kevin Hart teases new movie with Will Smith
The 1987 classic Planes, Trains and Automobiles is hitting the big screen once again, but this time with the two comedy moguls, Kevin Hart and Will Smith.
In his latest interview with Entertainment Tonight, Hart shared how easy it was for him to think of the perfect co-star.
"Me and Will have been talking about doing a movie for the longest time and we just [couldn’t] put our finger on what that movie was," he said.
The film will be produced by Paramount, alongside Hart's own company Hartbeat Productions and Smith's Westbrook Studios. Brooklyn 99's Aeysha Carr is set to write the script.
Hart continued about the film, saying, "For us to get to a point where we agree that said material was our project — because our personalities not only fit, but we could really pop in this situation — it was just a no-brainer."
"Remaking this movie is something we are excited about. We can't wait to do it. The studio's happy and it's about rolling my sleeves up and getting the script to where it's supposed to be," Hart added.
The original film features an odd couple on a three-day-long adventure trying to get home for Thanksgiving weekend. Along the way, they end up hitting various roadblocks and curveballs. The new movie will be the same storyline but updated and modernized.
