El-P hits out at Kevin Hart over plans for ‘Run the Jewels’ movie

Universal film is unrelated to the hip-hop duo of the same name

Rapper El-P of the hip-hop duo Run The Jewels has hit out at actor Kevin Hart over plans for a new film of the same name.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that Hart is working on the project with Universal. Written by Alex Blagg and Neel Shah, the movie will see a pair of unsuccessful rappers as they attempt to rob an eccentric hip-hop tycoon.

Despite its title, the film is unrelated to the rap group. El-P has taken to Twitter to claim that neither he nor Killer Mike, the other half of the duo, were consulted about the movie’s title, which is produced by Hart.

El-P tweeted yesterday: “Excuse me while I go starve a savage pack of lawyers for 7 days.”

A tweet from one fan read, “If you’re going to make a movie and you decide to call it “Run The Jewels” why would you not at least CALL THE BAND?,” El-P responded, “prolly lost or number. its cool we’ll be calling them.”

Killer Mike also took to Twitter and simply wrote “WTH” (“What The Hell”).

In 2013, El-P tweeted “4 words: RUN THE JEWELS MOVIE” which seemingly tells us he had hopes for the duo to release a movie at some point. Yesterday one follower tweeted a screenshot of the post, in which El-P replied ‘”yes I meant for us.”

Hart is yet to respond to the comments.
