Will Smith & Kevin Hart to star in Planes, Trains & Automobiles remake

It has already been 33 years since the successful theatrical release of John Hughes’ Planes, Trains & Automobiles, and now Deadline brings word that Paramount Pictures is officially in the process of developing a remake of the 1987 classic road trip comedy film with blockbuster stars Will Smith and Kevin Hart signing on for the leading roles.

Pick up a copy of the original film here!

The remake will be penned by Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Aeysha Carr. On top of starring, Smith and Hart are also expected to serve as producers through their Westbrook Studios and Hartbeat Productions banners, respectively. Westbrook’s Jon Mone and Hartbeat’s Bryan Smiley are also set to produce.

The original Planes, Trains & Automobiles film was written and directed by John Hughes (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club). Comedy icons Steve Martin and the late John Candy starred as Neal Page and Del Griffith, who were forced to travel together and become bunkmates in order to get home in time for Thanksgiving after their flights were suddenly cancelled. Along their three-day travel, the unlikely duo get themselves into a lot of embarrassing mishaps. After its release in 1987, the film was immediately met with positive reviews and has become one of the greatest comedy films to date.
