The Great Outdoors Is Getting a Remake with Kevin Hart
Universal has brought on superstar Kevin Hart to star in their comedy reboot of the 1988 comedy The Great Outdoors, which starred Dan Aykroyd and John Candy. This comes just days after news broke that Disney had actually approached Kevin Hart to play the genie in their Aladdin reboot before Will Smith. Kevin Hart will also produce through his Hartbeat Productions alongside Michael De Luca and his production company.

Deadline reports that Randall Green (Billions) has come aboard to write the script, although no details were given about this new version of the story. The original comedy centered on a Chicago family man (John Candy) who takes his wife (Stephanie Faracy) and sons (Chris Young, Ian Giatti) on a lakeshore vacation. Their trip is upended with the surprise arrival of their snobby in-laws (Dan Aykryod and Annette Benning) and their kids (Hilary Gordon and Rebecca Gordon).
