LeBron James is taking another stab at Hollywood (his company SpringHill Entertainment produced the now cancelled STARZ series Survivors Remorse). This time the NBA superstar has his eyes set on remaking the 90s cult classic House Party.
“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,” he said.
The 33-year-old and his best friend and business partner Maverick Carter are looking for artists to bring the film’s most important element, the music, to life.
“We’re trying out some ideas for musicians to be cast in and to be a part of the project.” Carter said.
As long as they get this scene right, we’ll be on board.
As of now there’s no mention on if Christopher Reid and Christopher Martin will join the film as consultants or producers, but we’d almost guess they’d jump at the chance to be apart of an historic remake.
House Party is just a long list of films James plans to bring to life. Last year he announced a limited Netflix series about the life of Madam C.J. Walker starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer. There’s also the long-awaited Space Jam remake where he’d take on the iconic role made famous by Michael Jordan.
