Get ready for a whole lot more of Kevin Hart at Netflix. According to Deadline, Hart and his company HartBeat Productions just landed a massive deal to make four exclusive movies for the streaming service giant.
The deal will see Hart starring in and producing all four movies, while Netflix will also get a first look at all movies that HartBeat Productions create. The comedian previously had a first-look agreement with Universal Pictures.
“Partnering with Netflix is an amazing opportunity for HartBeat and myself. I am excited to act in and produce cutting-edge films with Netflix,” Hart told Deadline.
The financial terms of the deal are not disclosed, but it is hard to see the figure being any lower than what Adam Sandler received for a similar deal early in 2020. Back then, Sandler committed to making four more exclusive movies for Netflix for around $150 million.
Kevin Hart and Netflix developed a strong relationship in recent years. It all started with the documentary web series Don’t F**k This Up, which followed the controversy revolving Hart hosting the Oscars in 2018.
Hart and Netflix then teamed up for stand-up comedy special Zero F**ks Given, which was released as an exclusive for the streamer in late 2020. It ended up being the most-watched comedy special on the platform, with more than 22 million checking out the title in the first four weeks.
Finally, Hart will also make an appearance in Netflix’s upcoming limited series True Story. This will be his TV drama debut.
