Comedian Kevin Hart plays a fictionalised version of himself in Prime Video’s Die Hart

"My whole life, I've been dreaming of becoming an action hero."

What happens when a comedic wingman wants to become a gun-slinging, building-jumping action hero? Kevin Hart’s new flick, Die Hart, answers just that.

Premiering worldwide on Prime Video on February 24, the film sees Hart play a fictionalised version of himself who sets out to pivot from being pigeonholed as a comedy wingman to being taken seriously as an action movie star.

“My whole life, I’ve been dreaming of becoming an action hero,” Hart says in the first look trailer released on February 9.

On a call with his agent, he hears that the director of the “biggest action movies of all time” wants to meet with him.

“I’m there!” he says with enthusiasm.

Hart is then faced with Jean Reno’s Claude Van De Velde, who says his next project requires a “gritty actor” and “holy s**t” he wants Kevin to play the role.

What ensues is a satirical look at what it takes to become a leading man in the action genre.

Led by John Travolta’s Ron Wilcox — who owns an “action hero school”— Hart attempts to learn the ropes on how to become one of the industry’s most coveted stars. 

The film also stars Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones) who plays Jordan King and Josh Hartnett (Wrath of Man), who plays a fabricated version of himself.

And if you’re not yet convinced, Die Hart was directed by Brooklyn Nine-Nine director Eric Appel, alongside writer Derek Kolstad of the John Wick franchise. Obviously, it’s going to be EPIC!

Die Hart premieres on February 24 on Prime Video worldwide.
