Kevin Hart is coming back to our screens for a Netflix film this June. The man known for his comedy ventures is staying with the same roots. But this time adding a little emotional toll on it. Yes, Fatherhood, a brand new comedy-drama produced by Columbia Pictures and distributed by Netflix will see the actor playing a single Dad. Paul Weitz has directed the film with the assistance of Dana Stevens, who worked on the screenplay of the film with him. Apart from Kevin Hart as the main lead, the movie also stars Alfre Woodard, Lil Rel Howery, DeWanda Wise, Anthony Carrigan, Melody Hurd, and Paul Reiser.

Fatherhood is based on Matthew Logelin’s 2011 memoir, Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love. It is a story of a single father learning what Fatherhood means when he loses his wife while delivering a baby girl. Now he takes up all the responsibility of raising her all on his own. Like we said a comedy with emotional touch this time. So here we are taking a look at what this new Kevin Hart flick is about and when we can expect the film to hit our screens as well who is playing who in Netflix’s Fatherhood.

Fatherhood Release Date

Fatherhood is officially releasing on June 18, 2021. It will release digitally on Netflix. Originally Fatherhood aimed to release in the theatres last year. The original release for the film was scheduled to be in the month of April. But in the January of 2020, Sony Pictures decided to push the movie to next year altogether. Following the scheduled dates, the Covid-19 pandemic came into play, and Fatherhood became one of the victims. This resulted in the studios pushing it twice or thrice to the year 2021. In the end, Netflix licensed the release of the film, and now Sony Pictures decided to release the film on the OTT platform all at once while they release it in theatres only in China.

Fatherhood Plot

The story of Kevin Hart starring Fatherhood follows Matthew Logelin, whose wife died giving birth to their newborn baby girl Maddy. What leads is Matthew learning how to grow a little girl as a single dad step by step. Especially when the world told him he couldn’t and should go back to the place where they could have a family. The film portrays the journey of a father and daughter’s love and a father learning what Fatherhood means.

The trailer of Fatherhood gives a little more insight into how the Netflix comedy-drama may fold out. We have lots of funny and quirky moments.
