The Man from Toronto: Cast and Plot!
The team of “The Man from Toronto” is going to feature a string of successful stars like Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson, playing the role of buddy-cops. In fact, Harrelson is the “Man from Toronto”. But it was Jason Statham’s role. He later stepped away from the project due to disagreements over the film’s rating. Along with these two, joining the crew will be Ellen Barking, Jasmine Mathews, Melanie Liburd, Pierson Fode, Lela Loren, Alejandro de Hoyos, and Tomohisha Yamashita. Hoyos is to play the character named Colonel Marin, but the rest of the characters are still not revealed yet in IMDb.
The story is about a comic character, played by Kevin Hart, who is mistaken for the “Man from Toronto”, who is a globally famous professional killer, at an Airbnb. From there they somehow team up to defeat an unspecified enemy while creating a ruckus on the way.
