Kevin Hart & Regina Hall in "About Last Night"

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:

    *Rolls eyes* I swear all you people on this site do is complain, complain, complain. This is clearly a popcorn, date night movie. It's a fun rom com. Not every film is meant to be this super cerebral experience that leaves us pondering the mysteries of the universe. Sometimes people just want to escape, have fun, and laugh a little and that's okay. People around here take themselves way too seriously. Jeez

  • CareyCarey | September 25, 2013 12:16 AM

    OH GOD! I have to agree with Bohemian Princess. We complain about actors (Halle, Paula Patton, Taye Diggs, Will Smith, Common, babies wipes, etc.), we complain about directors (Tyler, Lee Daniels, Antoine Fuqua, etc.), we complain about BET, we complain about the Emmys and the Oscars, we complain about Rom-Coms, slave and "hood" flicks, so what's left? Oh... that's right, Miles Ellison has said it many times, what's left are those films that the overwhelming majority in the black audience could care less about.

    "black audiences are getting exactly the movies they want to watch"

    And, in my opinion there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    "Sometimes people just want to escape, have fun, and laugh a little and that's okay"

    Ditto... I agree... it's okay with me too.

  • Miles Ellison | September 24, 2013 11:30 PM

    @Daryl

    I think black audiences are getting exactly the movies they want to watch.

  • artbizzy | September 24, 2013 6:47 PM

    I occasionally like watching Soul Plane while eating a bag of Cheetos, too. LOL. But come on, most mainstream black films are not "super cerebral experiences that leave us pondering the mysteries of the universe." I wish! This simply looks like a boring ass rom-com. A remake at that.

  • Rocket | September 24, 2013 6:32 PM

    BP,

    Amen sister. Its not that serious.

  • Daryl | September 23, 2013 6:20 PM

    I wasn't saying that, I'm saying you can do both, commercial and art house films, the problem is black folks with money just want to do popcorn films because they buy into the stereotype that's all black folks want to see, that's not diversity, that's one sided entertainment. The people that you say are complaining are saying we want to see black films that show a variety of the black experience instead of played out stereotypes of black people. In the end these guys are no better than hollywood when it comes to moving black culture foward. Don't you think black people deserve more than what's being offered to us?

  • campbell | September 23, 2013 4:09 PM

    I agree with what you say. Rom-Coms are escapism. But at least cast different actors, present different plots, for the allusion of something different than this generic product.
    Same actors+Same premise=same reactions and expectations from audiences.

    The sameness has gotten Packer paid, and I'm not mad. He's milking this formula for every drop. But the results are dry.

  • Daryl | September 23, 2013 2:26 PMReply

    Another tired black rom com, this time directed by a white director. Black folks get money and this is all we can do, smh, The guy Will Packer I respect his business sense but come on bra, can't you start producing good work that challenges the audience instead of just playing the demographic angle, Let's be honest his company has only produce alright black films, the reason they are sucessful is because black people are hungry to see themselves on the silver screen and he offering black films that are better than Tyler Perry. I would like to see him link up with good black directors like Spike Lee, The Hughes Brothers, Charles Burnett, Ava Duverny, Dee Rees, Barry Jenkins, Terrance Nance, Julie Dash and some others that have made great films and make films with them instead of playing as long as I'm making black films we should be happy card.

  • Miles Ellison | September 24, 2013 11:40 PM

    If he challenged the audience, who would watch? This movie, bad, good, or mediocre, will probably make more money than all the films of Burnett, Duverny, Rees, Jenkins, Nance, and Dash put together. They make "challenging" cinema. Who's watching it? Certainly not enough people to get their films into the same multiplexes as Tyler Perry's. The audience for Temptation is bigger than the audience for all of these films put together.

  • beemooree | September 23, 2013 12:02 PMReply

    This movie doesn't look good at all. Sadly I think this will be will packers first bomb.

  • Campbell | September 23, 2013 12:38 PM

    Is it good, who knows.
    But no way will this bomb.
    The budget is low enough, the actors are what women want to pay money for to see on the big screen, and they will promote this in every black media outlet for months, promoting Valentine's Day release. This isn't The Peeples movie.

  • NO BRAINER | September 23, 2013 2:16 AMReply

    Wow. Really? I didn't find anything interesting about the trailer. I'm not even sure what the film is about.

  • 90056 | September 23, 2013 2:16 AMReply

    Homogenous. Generic. Gimmicky.
    Should be successful reaching it's target demographic.

  • Boone | September 22, 2013 7:45 PMReply

    Son of a BITCH! Those Hollywood guys stole the idea I pitched to them last year called, "Who The F*** Wants To See This Bulls***?"

    DAMMIT, Hollywood is no joke.

  • scripttease | September 23, 2013 8:17 AM

    @Boone..... LMAO! We need some serious Black Love stories, no comedy.

  • slb | September 22, 2013 7:40 PMReply

    Is this "Think Like a Man Too"? Michael Ealy, Regina Hall, and Kevin Hart were all in that film. And this one looks even worse than that. This "rom-com" looks completely generic and there's nothing compelling in the trailer.

  • slb | September 23, 2013 1:19 PM

    @Jenna: I'm not faulting the actors for taking the roles. I just think the producers should alter the cast mix a little more. Those three had featured roles in "Think Like a Man" and now all three have featured roles in another rom-com? There are plenty of Black actors and actresses they can choose from to keep it fresh. That's all I'm saying.

  • Jenna | September 23, 2013 11:20 AM

    I totally get what youre saying but what do you want them to do? These black actors and many many more aren't getting roles. No wonder black people in North America were rooting for Kerry Washington at the Emmys last night. It's a rarity.

    We need to see more black talents in the film industry- These actors need better scripts etc.
