Kevin Hart is set to star in a remake of the classic 1988 John Candy and Dan Aykroyd comedy The Great Outdoors. I love the original film that was written by John Hughes. For me, it's one of those timeless classics that always makes me laugh.
The story centers on Candy taking his family on a relaxing vacation up in the woods when his annoying brother unexpectedly shows up and ruins it. I imagine the remake will follow the exact same plot.
As much as I hate seeing movies like this get remade, it seems like the kind of film that Hart would be perfect for. I can see him in this story. I have no idea if the remake will end up being better than the original, but as someone who enjoys his comedy and films, I'm sure he'll bring on the laughs.
The studio is currently looking for a director to helm the film and a co-star. Randall Green (Billions) is writing the script.
We will next see Hart in the upcoming Jumanji sequel, which looks better than I thought it would.
