John Hughes’ 1987 road comedy Planes, Trains & Automobiles is being remade with Will Smith and Kevin Hart starring and producing.

Steve Martin and John Candy starred in the original film as businessmen trying to get back to Chicago to celebrate Thanksgiving with their family, but along the way, they face a series of travel mishaps.

Smith and Hart will star in the modern take of the film and they’ll play characters who team up and face travel disasters while trying to make their way home to their families.

Smith’s most recent work has been in Bad Boys for Life and Jumanji: The Next Level. He’s currently working on production on King Richard, where he will star as Venus and Serena William’s father and his next role is in Fatherhood which will be released in April 2021.
