Sony’s Man from Toronto has added former Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco to work alongside Kevin Hart And Woody Harrelson in the upcoming film.
According to Variety, who first reported the news, Kaley Cuoco will join the action-comedy film as the female lead opposite to the previously-announced Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson. It will be her first major movie role since The Big Bang Theory ended.
Patrick Hughes, who directed Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson’s 2017 action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, is set to direct the script, which was written by Robbie Fox.
The story for the movie came from Fox and Jason Blumenthal, while Escape Artists’ (The Equalizer franchise, The Upside), Todd Black, Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are on to produce. Bill Bannerman is executive producing.
Man from Toronto will follows the world’s deadliest assassin, known as “The Man from Toronto” — played by Woody Harrelson — and a man named Teddy who is described as “New York’s biggest screw-up,” played by Kevin Hart. The two run into each other in a rented Airbnb and are forced to team up and save the day.
Harrelson’s role was originally intended for Jason Statham, who has since stepped away from the project. It’s currently unknown who Kaley Cuoco would play in the feature.
Sony postponed the production of Man From Toronto in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kaley Cuoco is best known for her role in the long-running Big Bang Theory. Fans can also see her in the upcoming HBO Max limited series The Flight Attendant, which she will also executive produce. She voices the title character on DC Universe’s animated series Harley Quinn, which is currently playing on DC Universe but will also soon be making the jump to SyFy.
Man from Toronto will be released on September 17, 2021.
