Hart to Star in “Extreme” Remake

Kevin Hart is planning to go to the “extreme”.

Universal Pictures has scored the worldwide rights to remake the hit Korean action-comedy Extreme Job, as a star vehicle for Hart, who will also produce the film.

The original hit film, directed by Lee Byeong-Heon, was recently released in the United States and revolves around a band of narcotic police officers who buy a failing chicken restaurant during a stakeout operation and they soon become the hottest new place to eat in town.

Tracy Oliver has been hired to write the script for the remake, which will be a co-production between Universal, Hart’s HeartBreak Films, and Korea-based CJ Entertainment. Hart is already working with CJ Entertainment on Bye, Bye, Bye, a film currently being written by Amy Aniobi. That film will be a female-driven remake of another hit Korean film, Sunny.

More as this develops.
