According to Deadline… Lebron James will reportedly make his feature film debut in a new film called “Ballers” where he will co-star with comedian Kevin Hart
Kevin Hart is signing on to star with LeBron James in Ballers, the basketball comedy for Universal Pictures
Hart will first co-write the comedy along with his scripting teammates Joey Wells, Chris Spencer and Harry Ratchford. He’ll then star as a man who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James), but gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami. Hart is certainly dominant in the stand-up arena, but posting up against this screen sibling could be dangerous. Hart is under 5’3″ while James is a towering 6’8.” That kind of sibling size differential hasn’t been seen since Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in another Universal comedy, Twins. They’ll sign a director when Hart and his cohorts turn in the script. The plan is to start production next summer when James has time off.
This is just… honestly… I can’t. I somehow wish that Tyler Perry shows up as Medea somewhere in the movie.
Maybe a cameo from Juwanna Mann…
