Hamburg, who wrote the films Meet the Parents in the 2000s, will write and direct the script. Kevin Hart makes a comeback with John Hamburg, who wrote the comedian’s hit Night School for Me Time, a comedy set on Netflix. Hamburg, who was perhaps best known for writing the Meet the Parents comedy in the early 2000s and coming together with Pauly, wrote and directed, and produced the script.
Hart is also producing with Brian Smiley and the pair’s Heartbeat Productions. Lauren Hennessy will also conduct production. The script focuses on stay-at-home dads who find themselves with some “me time” for the first time in years while their wife and children are away. He reconnects with his former best friend for a wild weekend that almost prolongs his life.
The project comes under Hart’s recent deal with Netflix that asks the actor to produce at least four features, setting up a first-glance deal. The project is targeted for shooting later this year. Joe Gatta will also executive produce. Hamburg’s Meet the Parents films were the comedy mainstays in the early 2000s, starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro.
Universal films grossed over $ 1.1 billion worldwide. Hamburg also wrote and directed another stiller with Cam Pol Polly, also starring Jennifer Aniston and I Love You Man, starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel. Why was he last directed? which starred Zoey Deitch, James Franco, and Brian Cranston. Night School, which he wrote and saw opposite Hart star Tiffany Haddish, was a $ 100 million hit upon release in 2018.
Hart is set to shoot Lionsgate’s high-profile video game adaptation Borderlands and recently wrapped up Sony’s action-comedy Man from Toronto opposite Woodrey Harrelson. Hamburg has been restarted by WME, manager Mikel Bondsen, and Sloss Ekhouse, while Hart has been nominated by UTA, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Shrek Rose.
