Kevin Hart has insisted that although 'Think Like a Man Too' has a cast made up mostly of black actors, it still appeals to audiences off any race
Kevin Hart insists 'Think Like a Man Too' isn't a "black movie".
The 34-year-old comedian stars alongside a number of other African-American actors in the upcoming sequel, but claims that just because the majority of the cast are black, it doesn't mean the film can't appeal to a wider audience.
He said: "We made a film that everybody can enjoy. Just because you put a predominantly black cast in a movie does not mean that you're doing a black movie, it means that you're putting quality actors and actresses in a movie that can make a good damn film."
The film, which is inspired by Steve Harvey's best-selling book 'Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man', is set in Las Vegas and 'Bad Boys 2' actress Gabrielle Union claims filming was like being on holiday with her best friends.
She told The Hollywood Reporter: "We're not just Hollywood friends we're legitimate non-Hollywood friends.
"So to pay us to do what we love all together in Vegas, I don't know how wise it was, but I think the fun off set and on translates through the film."
'Think Like A Man Too' is released in the United States on June 20 and in the United Kingdom later this year.
