Quibi orders Die Hart sequel from LOL Studios starring Kevin Hart!
After the initial became a genuine hit for the new streaming service, Quibi has announced it has officially ordered a sequel to the Kevin Hart-starring action comedy Die Hart with the Grammy and Emmy-nominated set to come back in the lead role!
Details concerning the follow-up are increasingly being kept to the chest for the moment close, but it’s been revealed the title for another installment in the action comedy franchise is entitled Die Harter, with the creators and producers clearly keeping their homage to the similarly-titled Bruce Willis-starring franchise alive as its 1990 sequel was presented with the subtitle of Die Harder upon many home media releases.
“LOL Studios is excited to create season 2 of Die Hart and continue our work to create premium comedic content and new IP to advertise,” Jeff Clanagan, President of Laugh ALOUD, said in a statement.
In season one, Hart played a version of himself attempting to come out of the role of “comedic sidekick” by visiting the world’s greatest action star school. While there, the school’s lunatic director (John Travolta) and tough-minded rival student (Nathalie Emmanuel) pushed him to his limits as he was thrown in to the deep end.
In addition to Hart (The Secret Life of Pets 2) and Travolta (The Fanatic), the cast for the series included Jean Reno (Waiting for Anya, The Pink Panther), Nathalie Emmanuel (Furious 7, Game of Thrones) and Josh Hartnett (Inherit the Viper, Penny Dreadful).
Hart will continue steadily to serve as executive producer on the next installment alongside LOL Studios’ Candice Wilson and HartBeat Productions’ Bryan Smiley, while Hart’s long-time business partner Jeff Clanagan shall produce for LOL Studios.
