Kevin Hart is set to take his comedy talents to the superhero genre with Night Wolf.

The actor and comedian will play a man who discovers his future father-in-law has a secret life as a crime fighter.

“I am excited to be working with our friends at STX again,” Hart said in a statement on Thursday. “They brought us a great project with Night Wolf. I instantly fell in love with this pitch about an everyday guy who is meeting his in-laws for the first time and unwittingly discovers his dad-to-be is secretly a superhero.”

Pokemon Detective Pikachu screenwriters Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit will pen the script for the story.

Hart previously teamed with STX for The Upside and the upcoming Black Friday. The star has a busy schedule ahead with Jumanji: The Next Level, Ride Along 3 and TV series Action Scene on his slate.
