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.

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.

Since then it's been one films and/or TV project after another. 

Today's Kevin Hart news comes courtesy of Warner Bros, as the studio has tapped Mr Hart to star alongside veterans Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in a film called Grudge Match, which centers on 2 retired brawlers who get back in the ring to square off against each other, as Deadline states.

Kevin Hart will play the fight promoter who gets both old men to return to the ring.

So what're we talking about here? Stallone and De Niro reliving their Rocky and Raging Bull days, with Kevin Hart potentially as a miniature Don King-type of promoter maybe?

The WB has green lit the film, with Peter Segal (director of several Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy movies combined) directing, from a script penned by Doug Ellin (Entourage).

Billy Gerber and Mark Steven Johnson are producing.

Stallone, we know, is already in pretty good shape (see the recent Expendables movies); De Niro however, will need to get back into fighting shape again.

Hart has projects with BET's House Husbands, and the remake of About Last Night (amongst other projects) coming up.
