Lebron James is continuing to make major moves in Hollywood. James and his production partner, Maverick Carter, will be producing a remake of the 90’s classic movie, House Party. The screenplay will be written by the same guys who write for the Donald Glover show, Atlanta.
James said of the film, “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.”

On talks about casting rapper Drake in the film, James said, “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 it now, but he’s a fantastic actor, and if he wants a role, Stephen will find a great role to put him in.”
