The stand-up comic and actor is first to board remake of 1986 film.

Comedian Kevin Hart is the first actor to join Screen Gems' remake of About Last Night.

The stand-up comic-turned-film and TV actor, who appeared in Think Like a Man, will play the role originated by Jim Belushi.

Screen Gems is mounting the remake of the 1986 Demi Moore-Rob Lowe starrer, based on David Mamet's play Sexual Perversity in Chicago.

There is no director attached to the film, which is being penned by Leslye Headland.

Hart, who is set to play opposite Kevin James in the Sony comedy Valet Guys, is repped by UTA and 3 Arts.
