Following successful separate projects for the streaming service, two bona fide megastars are joining forces on Netflix. As first reported by Deadline, Mark Wahlberg is poised to join Kevin Hart in an upcoming comedy film titled Me Time.
Night School scribe John Hamburg is penning the script, reuniting with Hart in the process. Additionally, Hamburg will direct the feature as well as serve as an executive producer via his Particular Pictures production banner. Kevin Hart will also produce the picture alongside Bryan Smiley (Fatherhood) for HartBeat Productions. Lauren Hennessey (Old School Sketch Show), Patricia Braga (Queenpins), and Joe Gatta (Conan the Barbarian) are on board to executive produce as well.
Per the initial report, the comedy will follow a stressed-out stay-at-home dad, portrayed by Hart. For the first time in years, he has a bit of personal time just for himself as his wife and kids are traveling. Excited to use his free time to the fullest, he decides to reconnect with his former best friend, portrayed by Wahlberg. However, the wild weekend takes a turn and nearly upends his entire life.
Mark Wahlberg’s recent offerings vary from action flicks like Spenser Confidential to memorable voice roles in animated hits like Scoob!. Up next, the actor will star alongside Tom Holland in the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of the popular video game franchise Uncharted. Meanwhile, Kevin Hart recently turned heads in Netflix’s heartfelt dramedy Fatherhood. Up next, the comedian joins The Rock in DC League of Super-Pets. Additionally, Hart will portray Roland in Lionsgate’s Borderlands.
