Kevin Hart will re-team with “The Upside” distributor STX Entertainment to develop two new comedies from his own HartBeat Productions label. Hart is expected to also star in both projects along with producing them.
One will be a body-switching comedy entitled “Black Friday “based on a story by Doan La, the other an international romantic comedy that is still searching for a writer.
STXfilms Adam Fogelson says: “It’s crystal clear audiences love Kevin and they want to see him in a variety of roles. This partnership allows STXfilms to take the successful collaboration we started with The Upside and extend it to new projects that further build on our mission to work with the best in the business to grow our profitable business model.”
Hart will be filming the third “Jumanji” film for much of this year.
