In recent years, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart have been one of Hollywood’s most fun duos both on and off the screen. The former wrestler and the comedian have found tremendous success in movies individually and with their combined efforts in Central Intelligence and especially Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. So it seems more a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if’ they will work together again and it’s looking like that when might be sooner than we thought. Take a look.
That certainly sounds like these two have something in the works. Dwayne Johnson isn’t clear about the specifics in his Instagram post, but he does indicate that him meeting up with Kevin Hart while he is on the set of Hobbs and Shaw is to discuss new opportunities, and that the two have some big things lined up.
While it’s of course possible that Dwayne Johnson might be talking about something other than a movie, given the industry these two are in, it stands to reason we’ll see Kevin Hart and Johnson onscreen together sooner rather than later. The question now is, what’s the movie?
You also have to love how much these two constantly rib each other. Whether it’s on the set of Jumanji or through social media, their banter off screen is as much fun as their dynamic on it. We see that here with Dwayne Johnson using his favorite insult for his diminutive friend, calling him his son and talking about wanting to slap him.
As far as what these two could be working on next together, besides Jumanji 3, we are left to speculate. Dwayne Johnson talks about building their enterprises, and for him and Kevin Hart, that’s not hyperbole. These are two of the hottest entertainers in the industry, showing up anywhere and everywhere with a ridiculous amount of projects always in the works.
So their next movie together could be something that’s already been announced or rumored, but given the tease of this Instagram post, I imagine it’s something new entirely.
That said, I could definitely see Kevin Hart showing up in The Rock’s Big Trouble in Little China movie. Given their history onscreen and their dynamic, I think the safe bet is that whatever it is, it will be good for plenty of laughs and a healthy return at the box office.
While we wait to see what movie set The Rock will torment Kevin Hart on, we can look forward to more of their jungle shenanigans as the two are set to return to the magical world of Jumanji in the as-of-yet untitled sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, hitting theaters on December 13, 2019.
