Lebron is becoming a movie star now, According to Deadline.com, James will co-star with comedian and actor Kevin Hart in “Ballers,” a new comedy that was first in development way back in 2009.
Kevin will play Lebron’s brother in the film, they will start production next summer to coincide with Lebron’s off season schedule. Variety reported this as the film’s plot:
“Story follows five guys who attend the LeBron James Adult Basketball Camp in Las Vegas, but end up dragging the phenom into their myriad life issues.”
The new log line, per Deadline.com, is as follows:
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.
Do we smell box office gold with these two? If they can ever get it together to start production, they’ve delayed it twice due to Lebron’s schedule… So hopefully they will start filming for sure in July 2014.
