Kevin Hart will star in and produce the action-comedy “Night School” at Universal Pictures.
Tim Story is in negotiations to direct the film which is based on a story by Hart and follows a group of misfits forced to attend adult classes to prepare for the GED exam.
Hart, Harry Ratchford, Joey Wells, and Matt Kellard penned the script with additional work by Nick Stoller. Will Packer will also produce.
Pre-production is currently underway with a release date expected to be announced shortly. Packer, Hart, and Story all previously teamed on the “Ride Along” franchise.
