Looks like Kevin Hart will be starring and producing a brand new film. Night Wolf, written by Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit, follows Hart as he meets his new father-in-law and the father-in-law turns out to be a superhero known as Night Wolf. The Think Like a Man star loved the idea immediately saying, "I instantly fell in love with this pitch about an everyday guy who is meeting his in-laws for the first time and unwittingly discovers his [father-in-law]-to-be is secretly a superhero." Kevin Hart’s company, HartBeat Productions, will oversee the project. STX Productions signed an undisclosed deal with Hart to produce two films. Along with this project, Hart also starred in the $100 million dollar grossing, The Upside with the company.
The movie is sure to be hit because Hernandez and Samit are the geniuses behind Detective Pikachu. The other reason the movie will be a success is due to Hart’s extensive film resume. Hart has starred in hit movies since 2002 which include: About Last Night, The Wedding Ringer, and Little Fockers. The BET 2012 Best Actor winner will also star in Jumanji: The Next Level alongside the Rock this July.
Could this be the film to help Kevin Hart bounce back? It appears that a 2017 sex tape has surfaced with Kevin Hart and Montia Sabbag. Sabbag is suing Hart for $60 million dollars. Hart allowed his friend, J.T. Jackson to record the tape without her permission. This could definitely be an incident that could ruin his career. A hit movie with would be a great distraction right now. Earlier this year, Hart was involved in a car accident where he sustained major back injuries. Hart’s friend, Jared Black, was driving the vehicle when he lost control of the car. Hart is currently recovering and doing well.
