"This movie is going to be super special & unexpected," Hart captioned the post. "Stepping into the world of real action has been everything that I thought it would be plus so much more." Hart gave credit to those who helped him on his fitness journey throughout filming Borderlands. "Major thank you to everyone that helped me prepare for this role....from my navy seal friends to my weapon training to the hand to hand combat. It was all worth it," he continued. "The world is in for a treat with “Borderlands” MARK MY WORDS!!!!!"

Hart tagged his trainer in the post, writing, "P.S shoutout to my trainer/brother @justtrain ....we did the damn thing man." His trainer, Ron Everline, replied in the comments, "We aren’t done yet and you weren’t suppose to post a picture a--hole."

The Night School actor is steadily expanding his resumé outside of his wheelhouse with each project. He recently starred in Netflix's drama Fatherhood, executive produced the upcoming documentary The One and Only Dick Gregory, and is set to star the 2020 film The Man From Toronto.

Borderlands will also star Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Jamie Lee Curtis, Edgar Ramirez, Cheyanne Jackson and Haley Bennett.
