Comedian Chris Rock is set to direct the original comedy feature “Coparenting” which has Kevin Hart attached to star and Universal Pictures is in negotiations to acquire.
Rock came up with the idea and “Black-ish” writer Yamara Taylor will pen the script about a stay at home dad raising the kids while his CEO wife serves as the family’s breadwinner.
He finds himself in emotional turmoil when his wife kicks him to the curb, and they engage in a bitter divorce and custody battle. Hart, Will Packer (“Girls Trip”) and John Cheng will produce the film which will mark Rock’s first directorial effort since 2014’s acclaimed “Top Five”.
