LeBron James to Produce New Line's House Party Reboot

Reboots of classic films are either a hit or a awful miss, but with LeBron James and Atlanta writers steering the ship, this remake of House Party looks promising already.

With the NBA All-Star game this weekend in Los Angeles, a haven for celebrities and Hollywood giants, now was the ideal time to announce King James' film production plans.

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

LeBron James is going OLD SCHOOL. producing a remake of the 1990 classic "House Party" - and he's tapping Donald Glover's brother to make it happen. The basketball and Trainwreck star has come aboard to produce a new House Party film with Maverick Carter, EW has learned.

The screenplay, according to Siegel, will be written by FX comedy Atlanta's Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori. The project will be a revival of the 1990s classic that starred hip-hop duo Kid 'n Play.


"This is definitely not a reboot".

The soundtrack is expected to include a lot of big names, with Drake rumored, as he is working with Springhill on Top Boy and The Carter Effect. He relished the thought of bringing "a new House Party to a new generation" as "unbelievable".

The original House Party film is about a party held at a high-schooler's house while his parents are away on vacation.

James has been making inroads into Hollywood over the past several years.

Carter said they're now "trying out some ideas for musicians to be cast" into to the movie. Even less expected: Steve Nash is producing an untitled feature about the rise of ecstasy and the rave culture in Reagan-era Texas.
