Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart are teaming up for 'Black Phantom'.

The actors are in talks to star in the upcoming action movie about a double-crossed mob hitman, with 'Ride Along' helmer Tim Story expected to direct.

The plot centres around a hitman who enlists the help of the notorious Black Phantom, who turns out to be the same killer who has been sent to finish him off, according to Variety.com.

There is no news as yet about which actor will be playing which role or the genre of the movie, but speculation is rife that it will be a comedy.

Hart and Story previously worked together on 'Ride Along', and producer Will Packer is also expected to return.

Packer will produce alongside Will Gluck from a script written by Dave Lease and Megan Hinds, with Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper overseeing the film.

Rising star Hart is having a great year at the boxoffice thanks to the success of 'Ride Along' and 'About Last Night' and can next be seen in 'Think Like a Man Too'.
