According to Variety, Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart are in talks to lead ‘Black Phantom,’ which has Hart’s ‘Ride Along’ director Tim Story in discussions to helm. If pen is put to paper, ‘Black Phantom’ would reteam Hart and Story with their ‘Ride Along’ producer Will Packer, who is producing the film along with Will Gluck. The outlet report that Packer has long wanted to do the film and, after the enormous box office success of ‘Ride Along’ and Foxx’s interest to work with Hart, the project seemed like the perfect match for all four men.
The story follows a double-crossed mob hitman who enlists the help of the Black Phantom, the same hitman who had been sent to kill him. Dave Lease and Megan Hinds penned the original spec. Jamie Foxx has ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ and ‘Annie’ set for release later this year. Kevin Hart can currently be seen in ’About Last Night,’ and has ‘Think Like a Man Too’ on the horizon. Hopefully we hear more about ‘Black Phantom’ shortly, as the combination of Foxx and Hart is certainly a formidable pairing.
