Based on the Matthew Logelin's memoir, Mr. Kevin Hart is planning to star in the film adaptation. The title, until further notice, will be called fatherhood instead of the book 's title.
Here is a quote from Mr. Kevin Hart, brought to you by The Hollywood Reporter:“When I started reading this script, I was immediately touched and brought to tears,” says Hart. “At HartBeat, we seek to provide the audience with stories that evoke true emotions and this story does just that. Our hope is to bring honor to the Logelin family, and we are thrilled to be working with Sony, Paul, Temple Hill and Free Association on such an incredible project.”
The memoir is about a widower who is raising his daughter all on his own. The screenwriter for this project will be Dana Stevens. Producing the film will be David Beaubaire, Peter Kiernan, John Cheng and Kevin Hart.

The Golden Globes have given some book-based/article-written movies the recognition they truly deserved. These movies and television series all started with a writer, like you and me, putting their idea or story into words. Now the film adaptation of their work has been nominated and I bet the individuals that first wrote them are thrilled that, in somehow some way, it all started from them. So, here are the book-based (and an article-written) movies and performances that are being appreciated by the Golden Globes. Congrats to them all and I hope they also win. The Golden Globe will air on January 6, 2019.
