Die Hart trailer: Kevin Hart gets a lesson in action stardom
Quibi has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming “Film in Chapters” Die Hart starring Kevin Hart as a fictionalized version of himself as he heads to action school to become the next action star. The hilarious and profanity-filled trailer can be viewed in the player below!
Inspired by the opening sequence from Hart’s 2016 concert film, Die Hart will follow Hart (Jumanji: The Next Level) as a meta version of himself who’s tired of always getting cast as a comedic sidekick. He gets his wish when a famous director offers him his dream – to be a leading man action star – but there’s a catch: Kevin must first train at the world’s greatest action star school, run by a lunatic (John Travolta). Pushed to his limits by this action school coach and a tough-minded rival student, Kevin must survive a series of hilarious, over-the-top action sequences and face his fears if he wants to achieve his dream and land the role of a lifetime.
Alongside Hart, the cast for the action comedy includes John Travolta (In a Valley of Violence), Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones), Jean Reno (Da 5 Bloods) and Josh Hartnett (Inherit the Viper).
The series is directed by Eric Appel (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) from a script written by Tripper Clancy (Stuber) and Derek Kolstad (John Wick franchise). It is be executive produced by Hart through his Laugh Out Loud Network banner with Candice Wilson, Bryan Smiley and Jeff Clanagan serving as producers.
Die Hart is set to premiere on Quibi on July 20, with new chapters premiering every weekday leading up to its series finale on July 29.
