Kevin Hart’s getting even mo’ money, now that he’s inked an exclusive four movie megadeal with Netflix. The comedian who clearly has the juice with the streaming service and his HartBeat Productions company have agreed to a long-term deal where Kevin will star in and produce at least four films.

Kevin recently released a statement on his well-paid partnership saying;
“I am excited to act in and produce cutting-edge films with Netflix. I am extremely grateful to Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber, we share the same creative vision and always put the audience first. This business is about growth and my HartBeat team continues to exceed my expectations with their ability to develop stories and relationships. Our goal is to make the HartBeat name synonymous with first-class entertainment and narratives.”
“Excited about this new chapter for myself & my company. I truly believe in our ability to make global films that will make a lasting impact in cinema history for years to come. We are just getting started people #HartBeatProductions.”
Deadline adds that Kevin had Netflix’s No. 1 comedy special of 2020 with over 20 million accounts watching “Zero F**s Given” within four-weeks. Additionally, his films have grossed more than a cumulative $4 billion at the global box office.
