Kevin Hart is in talks to star in a remake of Uptown Saturday Night.

Will Smith, who at one time was circling the project as a possible starring vehicle, is set to produce via his Overbrook banner.

The original 1974 buddy comedy starred Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby as two friends who visit a high-end, underworld nightclub where they get robbed and have to go searching for a winning lottery ticket.

Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the most recent draft of the movie that is set up at Warner Bros.

Smith will produce the Warner Bros. feature via his Overbrook banner.
