Pop Goes The News – Kevin Hart, a familiar face at Montreal’s annual Just For Laughs festival, will be in the city this summer to shoot a movie.
Hart stars in Fatherhood, an adaptation of Matt Logelin’s 2011 bestseller Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love.
The Sony Pictures’ flick, to be directed by Paul Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy) is about a man named Matt who is left to raise his daughter Madeline (Maddy) after his wife Liz dies of a pulmonary embolism a day after the baby is born.
Cameras are scheduled to roll in Montreal from late June to mid-August.
No further casting details have been announced.
Producers are currently seeking pregnant black women in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto who are willing to let their newborns appear as baby Maddy for $36.75 per hour with a four-hour minimum guarantee. (Babies of either sex must be 15 days old by June 23.)
