Two of the biggest stars in the world right now – and co-stars of the upcoming comedy Central Intelligence – Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, have announced they will host the 2016 MTV Movie Awards. For the first time ever, MTV will take the telecast the show outdoors on a backlot to capture the essence of movie making magic against a dramatic night time backdrop.
“It’s an honour to be hosting the ‘MTV Movie Awards’ with a guy who’s not only one of the funniest guys on the planet, but who’s often mistaken as my twin, Kevin Hart,” said Dwayne Johnson. “We live for our fans and promise to make this an epic, historic unforgettable night for them.”
“I love hosting – it’s my thing,” said Kevin Hart. “Dwayne and I are the perfect team for the epic 25th anniversary show. It’s going to go down.”
“Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart define what it means to be modern movie stars,” said Executive Producer Casey Patterson. “They have a direct and personal relationship with their fans, who love them for it and have made them two of the biggest entertainers in the world. They are bringing the action and comedy to the big 25th anniversary of the ‘MTV Movie Awards,’ which makes me excited and frankly a little afraid. Double trouble!”
Everyone else who will be filling out the show such as presenters and performers, have yet to be announced.
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart’s Central Intelligence is out in The U.S on June 17.
The 2016 MTV Movie Awards will air on Monday, March 11 at 10am accompanied by a pre-show at 8:30am.
