Jackson to replace Jamie Foxx in action comedy…

‘Captain America: The Winter Solider’ and ‘Django Unchained’ star Samuel L. Jackson is in talks to join Kevin Hart (‘Captain Underpants,’ ‘Ride Along’) in the “outrageously inappropriate” action comedy ‘The Black Phantom,’ says Deadline.

The Tim Story-directed film revolves around a double-crossed mob hitman (Hart) and the notorious hit man The Black Phantom, who has been hired to kill him.

Should Jackson commit to the project, he would be replacing Jamie Foxx who had to exit due to scheduling conflicts.

Dave Lease and Megan Hinds are producing with Will Packer and Will Gluck providing the script.
