Today, Kevin Hart became a bigger star, if there is such a thing. The uber successful stage of film, TV and stage was surrounded by family, friends and business associates to receive the prestigious accomplishment–a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Up next, Hart’s new stand up comedy film will be released October 14, filmed live before a 50,000 capacity audience in New York–
In Universal Pictures’ Kevin Hart: What Now?, comedic rock-star KEVIN HART takes center stage in this groundbreaking, record-setting, sold-out performance of “What Now?”—filmed outdoors in front of more than 50,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field—marking the first time a comedian has ever performed to an at-capacity football stadium. The event film takes Hart back to his hometown for the culmination of the biggest comedy tour in history.
Directed by Hart’s longtime collaborator LESLIE SMALL (Kevin Hart: Let Me
Explain, Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain), with the casino action sequences that bookend the concert directed by TIM STORY (Ride Along series, Think Like a Man series), the film’s behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography CAMERON BARNETT (Christina Aguilera: Back to Basics—Live and Down Under), production designer BRUCE RYAN (Let Me Explain) and editor GUY HARDING (One Direction: This Is Us).
The new comedy event that follows up Hart’s 2013 hit concert movie Let Me Explain—which became the third-highest live stand-up comedy movie of all time—is written by Hart, HARRY RATCHFORD (Kevin Hart: Seriously Funny) and JOEY WELLS (Laugh at My Pain). It is produced by JEFF CLANAGAN and LELAND WIGINGTON, who both produced the performer’s Laugh at My Pain and Let Me Explain, as well as DANA RIDDICK (Shaquille O’Neal’s All Star Comedy Jam).
The film is executive produced by Hart and DAVE BECKY (Laugh at My Pain, Let Me Explain).
