Run the Jewels Is Not Happy With Kevin Hart's New Movie Title

Run the Jewels Is Not Happy With Kevin Hart's New Movie Title

They plan to have some words with the comedian.

Published June 22, 2016

Kevin Hart’s new movie title doesn’t have Run the Jewels all that amused.

When the rap duo, comprised of El-P and Killer Mike, got wind that the name of the comedian’s latest venture shares their group’s name, they were not happy about it.

“Excuse me while I go starve a savage pack of lawyers for 7 days,” El-P reacted to the news on Twitter.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that Hart will be producing a new action-comedy film, currently titled Run the Jewels.

Not only does the name hit close to home for the rap group, but its storyline also borrows generously from contemporary hip-hop culture. As reported, the film “centers on a group of failed rappers who attempt to rob an eccentric hip-hop mogul.”

Hart has yet to respond, but something tells us this isn’t the last we’ll hear about this.

Check out El-P’s response to the forthcoming Run the Jewels movie below.
