For the fans who can get enough of Kevin Hart, you all have something to look forward to. The comedian is hard at work on his comedic action-thriller titled “Action Scene”.
Action Scene is a Quibi original series produced by Hart’s production company, Laugh Out Loud.
If you can recall the opening scene of his 2016 comedy special Kevin Hart: What Now?, that’s what Action Scene is based on. So should we expect an appearance from Halle Berry and Don Cheadle? We’ll soon find out.
The lineup of executive producers also includes Jeff Clanagan and Dave Becky. In the series, Hart will take on the fictionalized role of himself on the quest to snag a once in a lifetime action movie role (maybe ala Jason Statham?). After being rejected for the role, he randomly comes across a leading mystery A-list action star. According to Quibi “Their meeting inadvertently sets off a chain of events that force Hart to fight his way through a series of over-the-top action sequences with the help of some of Hollywood’s biggest action movie heroes.”
So even if Barry or Cheadle don’t appear in the series, it looks like we can expect some of Hollywood’s biggest action stars on the series.
Hart’s banner Laugh Out Loud brings together a pool of top-notch comedic talent to produce original scripted and unscripted works for the show, stand-up specials, candid celebrity antics, live broadcasts and more.
Meanwhile, you can expect more from Quibi. The streaming short-form platform from Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman has been playing its hand in the streaming wars. The forthcoming platform is set to release two dozen series when it launches sometime this year.
