With “Ride Along” banking $130 million at the US box office, it’s not surprise that Kevin Hart and director Tim Story are staying closely tied. They’ve already got a sequel to the hit comedy in the works, and later this year the pair is dropping “Think Like A Man Too.” And now, they’re cooking up another movie, one that will pair Hart with another major comedic talent.
Variety reports that Hart and Foxx (two names made to be together on a movie poster) will star in “The Black Phantom,” with Story directing. Dave Lease and Megan Hinds penned the script that follows a hitman who enlists the assistance of The Black Phantom… who had been sent to kill him. Sounds like an unlikely buddy/team-up scenario which is kinda perfect for these two.
This one is probably still a while off from going in front of cameras, but it looks like Hart is setting his ducks in a row to ensure we’re never too far away from another one of his movies.
