After a huge breakout directorial for the movie Top Five in 2014, Chris Rock will be returning behind the camera to direct a comedy film that will make you laugh your ass off. Will Packer will be the producer of this film, which he has produce all of Kevin Hart movies.

The script is being written by Yamara Taylor (black-ish) and the film revolves around a stay at home dad who raises the kids while his star CEO wife serves as the breadwinner. The man finds himself in emotional and public turmoil when his wife kicks him to the curb, and they engage in a bitter divorce and custody battle.

The film is based on an original idea by the comedic geniuses, Chris Rock and Kevin Hart. Packer will produce with James Lopez through his Will Packer Productions banner, alongside Hart and his Hartbeat Productions partner John Cheng, and Rock for his Chris Rock Enterprises.

Universal Executive Vice President of Production Kristin Lowe will oversee with Cheng and Carli Haney serving those roles for Hartbeat.

Rock is represented by ICM Partners, Untitled and Morris Yorn Barnes; Hart is repped by UTA, 3 Arts Entertainment and Schreck Rose; Taylor is CAA , 3 Arts and attorney Lev Ginsburg.

Will Packer and Kevin Hart have collaborated to make some big box office movies. Their companies also have Universal deals, they are coming off the hit that debuted at number one, Night School. Co-Parenting, which aspires to mix comedy with emotion the way that Judd Apatow and James L. Brooks do so well, gives Hart another opportunity to show his chops as an actor. He’ll next do that in January, when STX releases the Neil Burger-directed The Upside. Hart stars alongside Bryan Cranston and Nicole Kidman in the remake of French smash Les Intouchables. Which we will be covering in the near future.

Chris Rock is coming off the Adam Sandler Netflix comedy Week Of, where he also released his stand comedy special Tamborine. He recently wrapped Dolemite, the Craig Brewer-directed film that stars Eddie Murphy as the iconic blaxploitation star. He will also be starting in the next season of the FX series Fargo.
