Kevin Hart is working on his memoir 'From the Hart' and joked the book will prove he is a ''big deal''.

Hart - who has children Heaven and Hendrix with ex-wife Torrei - is penning a memoir called 'From the Hart', which will be released through 37 Ink, an imprint of Atria Books, and joked the book will prove he is a ''big deal''.

He said in a statement: ''My kids know I'm a big deal. They're very aware. I let them know every day, I say, 'Look, daddy's a big deal.' ''Now I'll have a book out to prove it.''

The book will track the 36-year-old star's progression, from a difficult upbringing in Philadelphia with his drug addict father, to his first stand-up comedy shows, to what motivates him now.

Hart recently admitted he is keen to host the Oscars one day. Hart believes he will be asked to front the ceremony - which has been mired in controversy due to the lack of diversity in this year's nominations - when things are ''a lot more positive'' and the ''time is right''.

He admitted: ''I think when I do eventually host the Oscars I think that the time will be right. ''I think that the setting will be a lot more positive than what it is today.''
