Actor Kevin Hart has signed on to star in the upcoming remake of About Last Night.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Screen Gems is remaking the 1986 movie and Kevin Hart is the first actor to be cast. The comedian will take on the role, which was first played by Jim Belushi in the older movie. About Last Night starred Rob Lowe and Demi Moore.
The first film was centered on the play Sexual Perversity in Chicago. It told the story of a man and woman who try to make their relationship work despite interference from their friends.
The new concept will be based on the same synopsis from the first movie, which reads:
“Danny and Bernie are two single men living their lives on the wild side. But when Danny meets Debbie at a bar and the two start a relationship with a one night stand, Danny’s life takes a different turn. How does this passionate night become a full affair and what effect will this relationship have on both people and their friendship with their best mates?”
Hart’s credits include Think Like a Man; The 40 Year Old Virgin; Scary Movie 3; and The Five-Year Engagement. The comedic actor’s career is very promising at this time.
There is no director yet attached to About Last Night but it will be written by Leslye Headland.
