LeBron James to produce new 'House Party' movie

LeBron James to produce new 'House Party' movie”

It seems Lebron James is going to take Hollywood head on by producing a transformation of the nineties classic "House Party".

According to Variety, no director has been attached to the movie yet although the screenplay will reportedly be penned by Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori who also wrote the script for FX comedy-drama "Atlanta". Following its success, two sequels followed in 1991 and 1994.

A few years ago, James used Kid 'n Play as a sort of punchline in a State Farm ad. So it's no surprise that James has chose to deliver a new "House Party" for a whole new generation.

So far, there's no casting news surrounding LeBron James' version, although Carter is looking to include major musicians for both the soundtrack and for key roles...including Drake. James admits that everyone he knew when he was growing up loved the movie and he is thrilled to be able to partner with such a creative team to bring "House Party" back for another generation.

"I had so much fun as a kid watching that movie", he said.

SpringHill Entertainment production company described the project as a "fresh re-imagining" of the original.

Discussions of James making a cameo in the film are also present, as his appearance in 2015's "Trainwreck" was widely celebrated. Hopefully it involves LeBron donning a flat top and recreating the iconic Kid "n Play dance sequence". Kobe Bryant is an Oscar nominee for doc short Dear Basketball, while Forest Whitaker, Nina Yang Bongiovi and Jason Samuels are producing an authorized doc about Stephon Marbury's surprising second act as a basketball god in China (Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah are directing).

James noted that most of his teammates in the Cleveland Cavaliers weren't born when "House Party" was first released. Even less expected: Steve Nash is producing an untitled feature about the rise of ecstasy and the rave culture in Reagan-era Texas.
