Sony Pictures is hoping to release the upcoming action-comedy film ‘The Man From Toronto‘ this November and to make that release date, they hope to start filming in March.
And it looks like they just now locked up their two leads. It’s being reported that action legend Jason Statham and comedy legend Kevin Hart are deep in talks to co-star in the film.
The Man from Toronto uses a case of mistaken identity as the film’s jumping-off point after the world’s deadliest assassin, known as the Man from Toronto, and a New York City screw-up run into each other at an Airbnb. A clash of personalities, and a clash with deadly killers, ensues.
Filming is expected to begin in March. Not much else is known about the project, but they’re certainly in good shape with Hart and Statham. You have the best of both worlds coming together, which should make for an entertaining film.
We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
And if Hart does take on this role, let’s hope he sits out on the stunts. We don’t need him messing up his back again.
