The movie Kevin Hart filmed in Montreal has a release date

Fatherhood was produced by Barack and Michelle Obama.

In summer 2019, Kevin Hart was seen frequently around the city of Montreal. As it turns out, the comedian was in town filming a movie titled Fatherhood.

The film sees Hart taking a dramatic turn. He plays a single father who must raise his daughter alone following the death of his wife during childbirth. The film also stars Anthony Carrigan (Bill & Ted Face the Music), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out) and Paul Reiser (Whiplash). Fatherhood is based on the novel Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love by Matthew Logelin.
