Kevin Hart and Jason Statham to Team Up For an Action-Comedy Movie, ‘Man From Toronto’
Kevin Hart and Jason Statham are in negotiations to team for The Man From Toronto, an action-comedy set up at Sony Pictures.
The project is a reteaming of sorts as the two actors briefly shared some scenes in 2019’s Hobbs and Shaw in which Hart cameoed.
Patrick Hughes, who directed the 2017 Ryan Reynolds-Samuel L. Jackson action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard is on board to helm Man From Toronto, which the studio has slotted for a Nov. 20 release. It will be a tight turnaround as the project is eyeing a March production start.
The story uses a case of a mistaken identity as its jumping-off point after the world’s deadliest assassin, known as the Man from Toronto, and a New York City screw-up run into each other at an Airbnb. A clash of personalities, and a clash with deadly killers, ensues. (The new project is in no way related to 1933’s The Man From Toronto, a romantic comedy.)
