Published: 04th September 2021

We had earlier reported that a comedy film titled Me Time is in development at Netflix with Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Hart, and Regina Hall on board. Now, the project has added actors Jimmy O Yang and Luis Gerardo Mendez to its cast.

John Hamburg, who wrote Hart's Night School, will write and direct the picture.

Me Time follows a stay-at-home dad (Hart) who finds himself with some “me time” for the first time in years while his wife and kids are away. He reconnects with his former best friend (Wahlberg) for a wild weekend that nearly upends his life. Details about the role played by the latest additions are yet to be revealed.

Director Hamburg will also produce the film through his Particular Pictures, along with Hart and Bryan Smiley for HartBeat Productions. Lauren Hennessey will executive produce the film alongside Mark Moran and Patricia Braga of HartBeat. Joe Gatta will also serve as an executive producer.

Me Time is a part of HartBeat Production multi-year first-look film deal with Netflix. Netflix is the exclusive home for four feature films starring and produced by Hart.

Yang is best known for featuring in the Netflix comedy series Space Force. He is currently awaiting the release of his movie Love Hard. Mendez was recently featured in the comedy film Half Brothers and will be seen next in season three of Netflix's Narcos: Mexico.
