LOS ANGELES— January 12, 2023 —Prime Video will launch Die Hart, the satirical action comedy that follows Kevin Hart (Ride Along, Fatherhood, Me Time) in his pursuit for a life-changing role. Die Hart is produced by Hartbeat, Hart’s global media company. The movie Die Hart will be available to Prime Video members worldwide on the 24th February, 2023 and in select cinemas in South Africa.
