LeBron James To Produce Remake Of Kid ‘N Play’s 1990 Classic Comedy House Party

LeBron James is jumping on the reboot craze!

The Cavaliers star and business partner Maverick Carter are producing a new version of the hit 90’s film House Party.

The cult comedy features hip-hop duo Kid ‘N Play that debuted in 1990.

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

The new film is being written by Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori from the FX series ‘Atlanta.’

‘It’s an honor when I got the opportunity to produce it, reboot the whole movie,’ James said.

‘When I was growing up as a youngster I was like, “Man, I hope I get an opportunity to throw one of these house parties, where it’s just a lot of fun, a lot of joking around, dancin’, people just having a good time”.

‘Everyone I grew up with loved House Party,’ he told The Hollywood Reporter.

‘To partner with this creative team to bring a new House Party to a new generation is unbelievable.”

But the 33-year-old noted some of his Cavs teammates might not be too familiar with the original film.

‘They are too young, I think,’ he said of his five teammates under the age of 26. ‘They weren’t [born] when it came out.’

He added that he may even make a cameo in the new film himself.

His longtime friend and business partner told the site: ‘We’re trying out some ideas for musicians to be cast in and to be a part of the project.’

‘There’s no plan for [LeBron to star] now, but he’s a fantastic actor, and if he wants a role, Stephen will find a great role to put him in,’ he added.

That same day the NBA superstar scored 37 points as he lead the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers to a  120-112 victory over Oklahoma City Thunder.
