Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart will host the 2016 MTV Movie Awards together, Variety has learned. The annual show, which airs on Sunday, April 10 at 8 p.m., will come prior to the duo's summer film "Central Intelligence."
This year's MTV Movie Awards, which marks the 25th anniversary for the award show, will be pre-taped live-style across the Warner Bros. backlot the day before the broadcast on April 9, taking place outdoors across multiple locations, unlike most award shows, which air from a singular theater.
"We want to do a big, brave thing to celebrate movies," the show's exec producer Casey Patterson says of filming across the backlot. "We love Kevin and Dwayne for doing big, risky, bold things. Most award shows play it safe. They're the right guys to take big swings."
