And the beat goes on for Kevin Hart, who's maybe one of the busiest actors/comedians working right now. I've lost count of the number of projects he's been attached to since the break-out success of Think Like A Man; actually, maybe it actually started before that; his stand-up comedy concert Laugh At My Pain, also did some impressive damage at the box office, for a film of its ilk.

These on-set images are courtesy of Just Jared, as you can see from the logo stamp. As you can see, principal photography has officially begun on Spike Lee's Oldboy adaptation; they actually started shooting early this week - Monday it was I believe. And here are the first group of photos from the film's set, showing star Josh Brolin, doing a lot of smoking, director Spike Lee, a body being taken away on a stretcher, with what looks like blood on them, and some women (1 of them apparently playing a reporter) that I can't immediately identify (maybe yu guys can).
