Lin Oeding (“Braven,” “Office Uprising”) will direct the comedic action-thriller “Action Scene” starring Kevin Hart and being made for the upcoming Quibi streaming service.
Based on the opening scene of Hart’s 2016 concert film “Kevin Hart: What Now,” the actor will portray a fictionalized version of himself on a quest to land the action-movie role of a lifetime.
After being rejected, Kevin randomly encounters a leading A-List action movie director in a meeting which inadvertently sets off a chain of events that forces Hart to fight his way through a series of over-the-top action sequences with the help of some of the biggest action movie heroes.
“John Wick” screenwriter Derek Kolstad is penning the work which is slated to begin shooting in January. Hart, Jeff Clanagan and Dave Becky will serve as executive producers.
