'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' is getting remade. Paramount Pictures are producing the movie as a star vehicle for Will Smith and Kevin Hart.

The original road trip movie was directed by John Hughes.

It hit cinemas in 1987 and has become a go-to holiday comedy in the years since.

It starred Steve Martin and the late John Candy.

They become travelling partners trying to make their way home for Thanksgiving after their flights are canceled.

Martin's character is the uptight one; Candy's had a more enthusiastic, laid-back attitude.

Chaos and hilarity ensued, and there was a lot of heart to the film too.

Here's one of our favourite scenes.

Hart and Smith are also producers on the movie.

Both have proven to be big box office draws between Hart's 'Jumanji' movies and recent Smith movies like 'Aladdin' and 'Bad Boys For Life'.

Hart wrote on Instagram: "Verified. I’ve been patiently waiting for the right project to team up with my brother with.

"We found it and are developing it together with our teams.

"This will be huge for us and the city of brotherly love aka Philadelphia..... let’s goooooo."
