LeBron James Producing New ‘House Party’ Remake

New Line Cinema

While television shows like Martin, Soul Food and One on One could possibly be making comebacks this year, LeBron James is planning a remake of his own. The NBA baller is set to produce a new version of 1990s classic, House Party, originally starring Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin.

 

Atlanta writers Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori are set to pen the screenplay, which James stresses isn’t exactly a reboot.

“This is definitely not a reboot. It’s an entirely new look for a classic movie,” the Cleveland Cavalier told 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.”

The news comes shortly after fellow basketball player Matt Barnes announced he would be producing a new biopic based on the life of Black Panther co-founder, Huey Newton.
