Titled Man From Toronto, Hart's latest action-comedy will take us all the way to New York City, as we witness perhaps the worst possible case of mistaken identity: The world's deadliest assassin (played by Woody Harrelson) and the city's biggest screw up (played by Kevin Hart) are confused for one another at an Airbnb rental.

Talk about a vacation gone wrong! But while we don't know what exactly their little mix-up will call for, we've got a feeling we'll be taken on one whirlwind of a ride. And you can bet we'll be tagging along the entire time. As for when we'll actually get to join in on the fun?

According to Sony Pictures, the upcoming movie will be gracing our screens next year during a very special time: MLK weekend. Set to drop January 14, 2022, Man From Toronto will share the same release date as Hart's former blockbusters. Of course, we're talking about Ride Along and Ride Along 2 - which famously dropped during the annual holiday.

Unfortunately, the newly announced release date might come as a shock to those who've been keeping up with the movie's production. After wrapping up filming back in December 2020, the comedy was actually set to hit theaters by November 2021. Unfortunately, due to the global pandemic, things were put on hold. And well, here we are.

But if the upcoming comedy's anything like we've seen before? We've got a feeling it'll be well worth the wait. "This is perhaps my most difficult role because I have to keep a straight face and act like I’m not wildly amused," Harrelson joked on Instagram of working alongside Hart. Safe to say, we're in for a real treat - and a whole lot of laughs. Until then? Be sure to stay tuned for all of the latest updates on Man From Toronto.
