Although this is in its early stages, Paramount and Mr. Kevin Hart are discussing about remaking the movie Scrooged. The 1988's Scrooged movie was a comedy that was based on Mr. Charles Dickens' classic novella, A Christmas Carol.
There is a possibility that he would produce the project under his production company Hartbeat Productions. It appears they are in search of a screenwriter too.
Ever since the novella's publication in 1843, this classic has been adapted numerous time. The first being a stage play and since then the adaptation has made it on radio, television, film, and other medias.
The classic novella has also been translated in many language and still in print until this very day.
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.
