Kevin Hart is ready for his next film and will be working with celebrated writer Tracy Oliver of ‘Girls Trip’ and new comedy ‘Little’. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hart and Oliver will remake Korean crime comedy ‘Extreme Job’.
Kevin Hart and CJ Entertainment have banded together to remake the Korean crime comedy Extreme Job. Tracy Oliver, who penned Girls Trip and Little, will write the screenplay for the project, which just landed at Universal Pictures. Hart is eyeing the project as a starring vehicle and will produce via his HartBeat production banner. CJ Entertainment, which produced the original, will also produce, with CJ’s head of U.S. productions Francis Chung producing. Oliver will also be a producer. Extreme Job, now the biggest-grossing movie in Korean box office history following its release in January, centers on a team of narcotics detectives that goes undercover in a fried chicken joint to stake out an organized crime gang. Things take an unexpected turn, however, when the detectives’ chicken recipe suddenly transforms the rundown restaurant into the hottest eatery in town.
