LeBron teaming with Atlanta’s Stephen Glover for ‘House Party’ remake.
LeBron James’ production company SpringHill Entertainment, which he co-founded with his longtime friend and business partner Maverick Carter, is producing a new “House Party” movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The comedy, which starred Kid-N-Play, originally debuted in 1990 and was followed by sequels in 1991 and 1994.
However, LeBron has told The Hollywood Reporter that the upcoming “House Party” remake is “definitely not a reboot.”
“This is definitely not a reboot. It’s an entirely new look for a classic movie,” James tells The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
Atlanta’s Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori will write the screenplay and Maverick Carter says they’re looking for musicians to be cast in the upcoming project. LeBron himself might even make an appearance.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, “We’re trying out some ideas for musicians to be cast in and to be a part of the project,” says Carter, who adds that a cameo by James, in high demand since his well-received performance in Universal’s Trainwreck, also remains a possibility. “There’s no plan for it now, but he’s a fantastic actor, and if he wants a role, Stephen will find a great role to put him in,” adds Carter.
