Here’s why we’re doubling back for a second cup of coffee this morning:
Fans may be in for a double-dose of funny if Kevin Hart and Jamie Foxx team up for Screen Gems’ Black Phantom. It has been confirmed that Hart and Foxx are in talks to star in the action-comedy about a mob hit man who enlists the help of “Black Phantom,” the same hit man who was sent to kill him. The project would be a reunion for Hart with his Ride Along director Tim Story and producer Will Packer both set to helm the film. Hart will star in the summer sequel Think Like a Man Too, set to hit theaters June 20 and Foxx’s next project, Annie, will premiere this Christmas. [HollywoodReporter]
