Well-suited for a Valentine's Day release (2014), which is when the film will open in theaters.

One of at least 4 upcoming films from super-producer Will Packer, that are scheduled for release in the next 6 to 12 months - Screen Gems' remake of the 1986 rom-com, About Last Night, starring Packer's Think Like A Man co-stars Michael EalyRegina Hall and Kevin Hart, as well as Joy Bryant.

This contemporary version closely follows two new couples as they... "journey from the bar to the bedroom, and are eventually put to the test in the real world."

Edward Zwick directed the original that starred Rob Lowe and Demi Moore as couple number 1, with James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins as would-be couple number 2.

In the remake, Hart plays the Belushi role; while Ealy is in the lead, originated by Rob Lowe.

Regina Hall plays the role originated on film by Elizabeth Perkins, the best friend, who has a love/hate relationship with Hart's character. 

And finally Joy Bryant plays Demi Moore's role.

Steve Pink is directing the film, which, from all we've read and heard thus far, may be closer in content to the original play that the first film was based on - Sexual Perversity in Chicago - written by David Mamet, which was more R-rated than the 1986 rom-com, full of profanity, depicting "intimate relationships [as] minefields of buried fears and misunderstandings."

We'll see when Screen Gems releases the film on February 14, 2014.

A brand-new trailer for the film has surfaced, with an intro and outro featuring Hart and Hall, and it's embedded below, so check it out:
