The Man From Toronto stars Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson have officially apologized for mispronouncing Toronto in their upcoming Netflix film.

The pair were caught with their linguistic pants down saying "toe-ron-toe" as opposed to the local pronunciation "tuh-ronno," in the film's trailer for the action-packed comedy.

In an interview with the Ottawa Sun, Hart assured fans that he meant no disrespect by the pronunciation slip up.

"Well, you gotta remember, we're not, I'm not from Toronto. If you’re from Toronto, of course you have an understanding of how it’s supposed to be said," explained Hart.

"He’s a world-renowned hitman and the legend of his killings has grown over the years and throughout his career. So, you got to think, everyone was pronouncing it that way — the Man From Miami, the Man from Wichita — it was all over." Hart said.

"Everyone is saying Toe-RON-toe because they’re from all over the place.," he laughed.

Harrelson chimed in and offered a blanket apology to all Torontonians saying, "well, either way, any time that it's mispronounced to Torontonians, we apologize," and Hart responded, saying, "there you go."

The new film features Harrelson as a deadly hitman dubbed "the man from Toronto" and Hart as a "screw-up sales consultant" who are thrown together for a wild adventure in a case of mistaken identity – forcing Hart's character to pretend to be Harrelson's.

The star-studded cast also includes Kaley Cuoco, who Harrelson previously spoke quite highly about.

If you're interested in seeing how the story plays out or just want to hear Hart and Harrelson say "Toronto" wrong, you can watch the film on Netflix on June 24.
