Kevin Hart and Jamie Foxx to Team Up for Black Phantom


Philly funny man Kevin Hart is everywhere these days. His hit comedies Ride Along and About Last Night are currently playing in theaters, and he’s got a slew of projects in the works, including a new one with Jamie Foxx. Variety reports that the two will pair up to star in Black Phantom, a film by Ride Along writer Tim Story that ”follows a double-crossed mob hitman who enlists the help of the Black Phantom, the same African-American hitman who had been sent to kill him.” More on the project here.


MORNING TEA: Bradley Cooper,
Kevin Hart, Tina Fey Nominated for
MTV Movie Awards

mtv movie awardsPhilly will be well represented at this year’s MTV Movie Awards: Bradley Cooper is in the running for Best Male Performance for American HustleTina Fey (alongside Amy Poehler) is up for Best Cameo Performance in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and Kevin Hart nabbed two nominations — Best Comedic Performance for Ride Along, and he and Ice Cube are nominated together for Best Comedic Duo in the same film. My guess is that Hart is a shoe in, especially for Best Comedic Performance, since he just took home a similar prize at the way-more-prestigious NAACP Spirit Awards.

The MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Conan O’Brien, airs Sunday, April 13, at 9 p.m. on MTV.

Philly’s Kevin Hart Has the No. 1 Movie in America

Grantland reports that Ride Along, Philly comedian Kevin Hart’s movie with Ice Cube, is No. 1 in the country: “Two records for Ride Along, right off the bat: biggest January weekend, edging out Cloverfield’s $40.1 million, and highest-grossing original comedy debut since Ted hit in June 2012. Per Box Office Mojo, the viewership breakdown was “57 percent female, and 54 percent over the age of 25. The ethnic breakdown was 50 percent African American, 30 percent Hispanic, and 12 percent Caucasian.” So there’s another little piece of data to gesture toward the next time an influential Hollywood exec assumes all movies should always be geared toward white men. More on Kevin Hart, though: He has at least three more movies coming this year, and a sequel to Ride Along has been in development since April 2013.” We’ve been saying it awhile now, but it’s true: This is the year of Kevin Hart.
