Indeed, movie-watchers and fans are all part of the Netflix revolution. The streaming platform has Hollywood on the run. The Kevin Hart Netflix deal is just another very smart attempt from the streaming giants to lure in Hollywood’s biggest and best talents. It’s a strategy that is working well for them.
The Netflix head of original films, Scott Stuber, said that Hart was one of the “few artists who can attract audiences of all ages.”
Stuber also told Variety that “Netflix has enjoyed a long relationship with Kevin and we’ve been lucky enough to partner with him many times. He’s a hands-on producer and it’s been great to watch him build an incredible company with HartBeat.”
The Changing Face of Streaming Movies
The deal is a real boon for Netflix. However, this is not the first time that Hart has worked with the streamers. Several of his standup comedy specials are shown on Netflix with the most recent being “Zero F#cks Given.”
No-one can argue about Kevin’s massive draw at the box office. Previous films in which he starred such as ‘Jumanji’, ‘Central Intelligence’, and ‘The Upside’ have generated a massive $4 billion. This is from ticket sales across the world.
