LeBron James to pro­duce new ‘House Party’ movie

Imperial Valley Press - - YOUR NEWS -

CLEVE­LAND (AP) — LeBron James is go­ing old school to make a new movie.

The Cava­liers star and busi­ness part­ner Mav­er­ick Carter are pro­duc­ing a new ver­sion of “House Party,” the com­edy fea­tur­ing 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 Tues­day in Ok­la­homa City. “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.’”

James noted some of his Cavs team­mates weren’t born when the orig­i­nal film came out. He may make a cameo in the new film.
