ATLANTA, GA — It used to be a rarity to find someone connected to Hollywood in Atlanta, but now that the city is the moving-making capital of the world, it’s nothing to run into producers, grips, production assistants and lighting directors around town.
Kevin Hart, one of America’s funniest comedians and movie stars, is looking for some production help on his new film “Night School.” (SIGN UP: For more information on this and other neighborhood stories, subscribe to Patch to receive daily newsletters and breaking news alerts.

The film is about a group of cut-ups who must attend night school to earn their GED. Hart is the lead in the movie, which is directed by Malcolm D. Lee “The Best Man.” Hart’s Heartbeat Productions is also producing the movie as is Will Packer Productions.
