Will Smith and Kevin Hart To Star In Planes, Trains & Automobiles Remake!
Hart confirmed the project on his
Instagram, captioning the photo: “I’ve been patiently waiting for the right
project to team up with my brother with. We found it and are developing it
together with our teams. This will be huge for us and the city of brotherly
love aka Philadelphia….. let’s goooooo @willsmith 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾”
Released in 1987, the original movie
starred Steve Martin and John Candy and was directed by famed comedy and
teen-romcom filmmaker John Hughes (Home Alone, The Breakfast Club and Sixteen
Candles).The original film followed their characters Neal Page, a high-strung
marketing executive, and Del Griffith, a goodhearted but annoying shower
curtain ring salesman on a whacky road trip together in order to make it home
to their families in time for the holidays.
Planes, Trains & Automobile marks another
remake for the two actors. Smith recently portrayed Genie in the Disney
live-action remake of Aladdin and Hart just came off Jumanji: The Next Level, a
remake of the 1995 Jumanji film.Smith is also in the works of rebooting
Bel-Air, a gritty and dark take on the comedic 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of
Bel-Air that shot Smith to stardom.
With many remakes and reboots happening in
the industry, fans of John Hughes are waiting to see if this duo can pull off
the Planes, Trains & Automobiles remake.
