The film will be a modern take on the original, Fox News can confirm, and Smith, 51, and Hart, 41, will star as two men that must team up to overcome obstacles on their way to their loved ones.
The remake will be written by Aeysha Carr, who has written episodes of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Carmichael Show.” The project will be her feature film writing debut.
Carr also has producing credits under her belt, including Hulu’s upcoming “Woke,” set to debut next month.
Hart and Smith’s production companies, HartBeat and Westbrook, respectively, are developing the movie, which will be produced by the actors and partners at their companies.
Hart’s last film was 2019’s “Jumanji: The Next Level” and most recently, he starred in Quibi’s “Die Hart.”
Smith most recently appeared in “Bad Boys for Life” and Westbrook reportedly reached a settlement in the lawsuit over the upcoming film “King Richard,” in which he plays Richard Williams, father to tennis icons Venus and Serena Williams.
