Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart to host MTV Movie Awards

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart will host the MTV Movie Awards.

The 'Furious 7' star is "honoured" to be teaming up with the 36-year-old comedian to host the annual ceremony and is promising an "epic, historic unforgettable night" for viewers.

He said: "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. We live for our fans and promise to make this an epic, historic unforgettable night for them."

Whilst Kevin added: "I love hosting - it's my thing. Dwayne and I are the perfect team for the epic 25th anniversary show. It's going to go down."

Praising their appointment, Executive Producer Casey Patterson shared: "Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart define what it means to be modern movie stars. 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!"

The 25th anniversary edition of the MTV Movie Awards will be taped on Saturday April 9 at the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California and will be aired on April 11 at 8pm GMT.
