"After we acquired Night Wolf, we submitted it to Kevin Hart and the team at HartBeat, hoping they would love it as much as we did," STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said of the pitch and Hart's casting."It is a big, broad comedy, and the idea is great fun and perfectly matched with Kevin's comedic talent."

Hart is currently filming his latest film, Fatherhood, opposite DeWanda Wise, Alfre Woodard and Lil Rel Howery.
