The series was also turned into a film by Amazon and released on the OTT platform. Season 2 got Hart, playing his fictionalized self, involved in a revenge plot. Whether that will continue in Season 3, we do not know because neither the plot nor the cast, other than Hart, has been revealed. The shoot, however, is complete which means the project is now in its post-production stage. Further details are awaited.

‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles’ is a remake of the classic 1987 comedy film, centering around the misadventures of an unlikely duo struggling to reach their respective destinations just in time for the holiday weekend.

6. Fight Night: The Million Dollar Heist (TBA)

Kevin Hart is set to star in a limited crime series created and written by Shaye Ogbonna based on a podcast produced by Will Packer who also serves as the series’ producer along with Hart. Helmed by Craig Brewer, it showcases the armed heist during the night of Muhammad Ali’s historic comeback fight in 1970 that changed Atlanta’s very destiny. At a personal level, the film revolves around the guy at the center of the heist and the Black detective who looked into the case. Other than Hart, no other cast member has yet been revealed.

The talented filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa is at the helm, with the charismatic actor-comedian Hart leading the cast. Presently, the script is in the drafting stage, promising an exciting cinematic revival of this classic tale.

8. Untitled Lucia Aniello/Paul W. Downs/Kevin Hart Project (TBA)

Hart is slated to take the lead in the upcoming untitled action-comedy movie, originating from the creative minds of writers Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs. This project, in development at Universal Pictures, has Malcolm D. Lee as its director. Hart also serves as an executive producer of the same. While the specific plot details and additional information are shrouded in secrecy, it’s worth noting that the project is still in its nascent stages, leaving eager audiences to anticipate further updates.

9. Night Wolf (TBA)

Tim Story is confirmed to take the director’s chair for the upcoming superhero comedy ‘Night Wolf,’ featuring Hart in the lead role. This film promises to deliver a delightful blend of humor and superhero antics, following the meet-the-parents comedy trope.

While the script is undergoing finalization, we eagerly await further updates on this intriguing and comical cinematic venture.

10. Untitled Jumanji: The Next Level sequel (TBA)

A sequel to ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ (2019) is in the pipeline with Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black set to return. Along with them, we will also be having Danny DeVito, Danny, Awkwafina, and Nick Jonas. Brendan Fraser is also rumored to be joining the cast. Jake Kasdan will helm the Columbia Pictures project whose pitch is complete although we do not know anything about the plot. However, based on the ending of ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ that showed the game world coming into our world and Johnson’s tease that it will explore the villain Jurgen the Brutal and who his avatar is, we can say that Jumanji 4 will have the “best of both worlds.” As of now, the film is in its script stage and we will have to wait for more updates.

11. Ride Along 3 (TBA)

The gears are officially turning for the third installment of the popular ‘Ride Along’ comedy series. Hart and Ice Cube are all set to reprise their iconic roles as Ben Barber and James Payton, and they are joined by Tika Sumpter and Shavon Majoi to feature in the movie. The film will once again be guided by the directorial expertise of Tim Story. While the script is currently in development, specific plot details and further information remain under wraps, building anticipation for what promises to be another hilarious addition to the beloved franchise.

The original film revolves around Ben, who sets out to prove to his girlfriend’s police officer brother James that he is worthy of marrying the latter’s sister. “We’ve been talking a little bit on Ride Along 3, we haven’t locked in on the right concept and the right place to take the franchise. We don’t wanna do it just to do it just to do it. We need to do it, and it needs to be a standalone movie that works. So, we’re gonna work it out. Kevin Hart, you know, he’s hard to find, too,” Cube told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year.

12. Monopoly (TBA)

Tim Story, who is at the helm of the film, confirmed earlier this year that the project is still in development. “So we have been talking to writers, it is still being developed, and hopefully, we’ll get to a blueprint that we can kind of get something made,” the filmmaker said about the project, as per SlashFilm.
