LeBron James is Producing a Reboot of '90s Comedy 'House Party'
James calls it "an entirely new look for a classic movie"
Published Feb 13, 2018No stranger to showing off his pull in the music world, NBA icon LeBron James will take an additional step into the world of film in bringing a new version of a '90s comedy to the big screen.
As the Hollywood Reporter points out, James and his SpringHill Entertainment partner Maverick Carter are set to produce a reboot of House Party. Atlanta writers Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori have been tapped to write the screenplay.
"This is definitely not a reboot. It's an entirely new look for a classic movie," James 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."
Carter added that they are currently trying out ideas for musicians to be cast in the feature, in addition to a star-studded soundtrack. He wouldn't rule out the possibility of a cameo from James in the film as well.
The original House Party was released in 1990, with sequels following in 1991 and 1994. Find a trailer for the original film below.
