Kevin Hart has just landed his next project.
Hart is set to star in and produce the superhero comedy Night Wolf. STXFilms acquired the project, and Hart and his HartBeat Productions will produce the film.
The superhero comedy feature hails from Detective Pikachu scribes Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit. According to Deadline, Night Wolf follows “a Meet the Parents-esque encounter where a man (Hart) meets his future father-in-law for the first time only to discover he is secretly the superhero known as the Night Wolf.”
“After we acquired Night Wolf, we submitted it to Kevin Hart and the Team at HartBeat hoping they would love it as much as we did. It is a big, broad comedy and the idea is great fun and perfectly matched with Kevin’s comedic talent. We are thrilled to be working on what will now be our fourth film together,” said Chairman of STXfilms Adam Fogelson who made the announcement this morning.
“I am excited to be working with our friends at STX again. They brought us a great project with Night Wolf. 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 dad to be is secretly a superhero,” added Hart.
