Mark Wahlberg is set to have some me-time with Kevin Hart in the Netflix comedy Me Time.
Hart’s Night School writer John Hamburg will write and direct the pic that follows a stay-at-home dad (Hart). He finds himself with some “me time” for the first time in years while his wife and kids are away. In taking advantage of said time, he reconnects with his former best friend (Whalberg) for a wild weekend that nearly upends his life.
Hamburg will also produce through his Particular Pictures along with Hart and Bryan Smiley for HartBeat Productions. Lauren Hennessey will exec produce along Mark Moran and Patricia Braga of HartBeat. Joe Gatta will also exec produce.
“Me Time” is part of Hart’s first-look film deal with Netflix, which he signed earlier this year, in which he will produce and star in four separate films for the streaming giant.
The film deal for Hart is akin to the partnership Adam Sandler has with Netflix, and under the multiyear agreement, Hart will also have a first-look film deal for other films under the HartBeat Productions banner.
Up next Mark Wahlberg 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.
