It’s Hart vs. Harrelson in a case of mistaken identity for this Netflix comedy, streaming June 24.
The wrong AirBnB can make all the difference—especially if it leads to a fatal mix-up.
Kevin Hart plays a clumsy sales representative who checks into the wrong vacation rental in Netflix comedy The Man from Toronto. When Hart enters a torture chamber, he must quickly pose as the Toronto assassin of the same name in order to save his own life. But the CIA wants him to remain undercover to help them find him real A Toronto man who is none other than Woody Harrelson.
The buddy comedy continues as Harrelson trains Hart to be him and Hart must decide whether or not to turn the Toronto man over to the FBI. The Hitman’s Bodyguard director Patrick Hughes is directing the Netflix film, which will air June 24.
Kaley Cuoco, Jasmine Mathews, Lela Loren, Pierson Fodé, Jencarlos Canela and Ellen Barkin also star in the action comedy. Robbie Fox and Chris Bremner wrote the screenplay, while Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch produced.
Director Hughes stated that Hart and Harrelson’s comedic chemistry is at the heart of the action parody film. “I’m a big fan of buddy comedy and I love how at the end of the day it’s always like a love story between two completely opposite people,” Hughes told Entertainment Weekly. “Kevin Hart’s character is like a wet noodle that needs to find strength to hold his own in the world because it’s walked all over him. On the other side of this coin, the “Toronto man” is someone who needs to get in touch with their emotions a little more than just kill everyone. Seeing them learn from each other is really fun.”
The Man from Toronto also marks Harrelson’s first premiere since starring in the Palme d’Or-winning 2022 Ruben Ostlund’s latest dark comedy, Triangle of Sadness. Harrelson will also be collaborating again with Östlund on the upcoming movie Entertainment System Is Down, Östlund confirmed exclusively to IndieWire. Harrelson will star in Richard Nixon’s biopic miniseries The White House Plumbers and the prison escape series The Most Dangerous Man in America, both currently in production.
The Man from Toronto premieres June 24 on Netflix.
