In On the Run, Hart will play a hit man whose assignment goes awry when the target isn’t who he expects. Hart has Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Night School coming. Packer and Hart have teamed together before on the Ride Along and Think Like A Man franchises.

Universal’s SVP Production Kristen Lowe will oversee production for the studio.

Carr is repped by 3 Arts Entertainment, ICM Partners and Stone, Genow;  Hart is with 3 Arts, UTA, and Schreck Rose; Packer is with CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.
