LeBron James to Produce ‘House Party’ Remake + Confirms ‘Space Jam 2’
LeBron James is making moves on and off of the court. EW reports that the basketball icon is currently planning to produce a new House Party film alongside Maverick Carter.
The script will be written by Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori, the writers behind the Emmy-winning Atlanta for SpringHill Entertainment and New Line Cinema. When speaking about the film, LeBron stated that it’s not a reboot but more of a new look for a classic film:
“This is definitely not a reboot. It’s an entirely new look for a classic movie. Everyone I grew up with loved House Party. To partner with this creative team to bring a new House Party to a new generation is unbelievable.”
Fans can expect a star-studded soundtrack, perhaps even James’ good pal Drake, with whom SpringHill is collaborating on Netflix’s crime drama, Top Boy, and Vince Carter doc The Carter Effect.
James is also executive producing and starring in the long-rumored, now-confirmed Space Jam 2 for director Justin Lin. He’ll be seen — or, rather, heard — next in the animated Bigfoot movie, Smallfoot.
