Screen Gems is remaking the 1986 rom-com, About Last Night, and Kevin Hart is the first actor to be cast in the project that centered on a man and woman who try to have a romantic affair, but are hindered by their own personal problems, as well as the interference of their disapproving friends.

Danny and Bernie are two single men living their lives on the wild side. But when Danny meets Debbie at a bar and the two start a relationship with a one night stand, Danny's life takes a different turn. How does this passionate night become a full affair and what effect will this relationship have on both people and their friendship with their best mates?

Edward Zwick directed the original that starred Rob Lowe and Demi Moore as the couple who meet (Danny and Debbie), and James Belushi played Danny's best friend, Bernie.

I'll give you 1 guess as to which character Kevin Hart has signed up to play. You'll only need one :)

No word on whether this will be an all-black cast remake of the film (which itself is based on the 1974 David Mamet play Sexual Perversity in Chicago) or if Hart will be the 'solo Negro.'

Stay tuned for more casting news whenever more is revealed.

No director has been attached yet either.

    tambay, has cynical as you are, "solo negro" was below the belt. at least, give hart, a level of respect for getting work without reducing him to a derogatory label

    I don't think that's the point, how do u know that Kevin hart wont take it as a personal attack?

    @ Kai, I can't speak for Tambay brother and I could be wrong but in this case I don't think he meant it as a personal attack to Kevin but more towards Hollywood and how they view black actors.

    Sólo Negro, might be a good title for leading black man. Is the 'Hero's Journey' the same for black people? Orphan, as if our journey cant start off with love. Wander, as if we dont already know what we want. Warrior, when it should be too late to learn how to fight. Martyr, so even we win the star we can never truly be proclaimed the winner. How is this popular formula? Leading the audience through a popular fantasy and returning us safely to mediocrity. To be on tableau before an audience is truly a violent death.
