F. Gary Gray, Kevin Hart to Team Up For Heist Film Lift


F. Gary Gray and Kevin Hart are teaming up for heist film Lift, which Netflix acquired in March.

Hart will play a master thief who is wooed by his ex-girlfriend and the FBI to pull off an impossible heist with his international crew on a 777 flying from London to Zurich.

Dan Kunka penned the script that Gray will direct.

Gray, who is coming off Straight Outta Compton, The Fate of the Furious and Men in Black: International, had been set to next direct the action film Muscle with Vin Diesel. That film remains very much on track, but Diesel and Gray will pick that back up after Lift is finished and Diesel completed Fast and Furious 10.
