A ‘House Party’ Remake Is In The Works With LeBron James & Maverick Carter As Producers
by Lupe LLerenas
LeBron James is taking on another role in the Hollywood industry as he is set to produce a remake of the 90’s film, House Party.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, SpringHill Entertainment, which was founded by James and his partner Maverick Carter, will produce a new House Party. While Atlanta writers Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori are set to write the screenplay.
“This is definitely not a reboot. It’s an entirely new look for a classic movie,” James told THR. James, who grew up loving the film, said that the opportunity to bring “House Party” to a new generation is “unbelievable.”
“We’re trying out some ideas for musicians to be cast in and to be a part of the project,” Carter said. James is good friends with Drake, and SpringHill is already collaborated with the rapper on two projects.
The original comedy was released by New Line in 1990. It had two sequels, in 1991 and 1994, and starred Kid and Play of the hip hop duo Kid ‘n Play.
Congrats LeBron James and Maverick Carter, we can’t wait to see the final project!
