Paramount Pictures has enlisted Kevin Hart and Will Smith to produce and star in a remake of the classic 1987 John Hughes comedy Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
The original film saw Steve Martin as Neal Page, an uptight businessman who finds himself stuck on a cross country journey with John Candy’s kind-hearted yet insufferable travelling salesman Del Griffith as he attempts to make it home in time for Thanksgiving.
Hart and Smith are set to star, as well as producing through their Hartbeat Productions and Westbrook Studios production banners respectively, while Aeysha Carr (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Woke) will pen the script.
