SpringHill Entertainment, the production company owned by LeBron James, plans to create a remake of the “House Party,”an early 1990’s hit that starred Kid ‘n Play. However, the Cleveland Cavaliers star thinks that before that, it might be necessary to let some of his teammates in on what they can expect from the film.
“They are too young, I think,” James talked about five of his Cavaliers teammates who are 25 years old or younger.”They weren’t [born] when it came out.”
It’s already been quite some time since attitude lines and high top fades were the “in” thing. James’ remake of the “House Party” aims to give a modern touch to the franchise, while keeping its essence.
“This is definitely not a reboot. It’s an entirely new look for a classic movie,” James said. “Everyone I grew up with loved ‘House Party.’ To partner with this creative team to bring a new ‘House Party’ a new generation is unbelievable.”
“Atlanta” writers Jamal Olori and Stephen Glover will handle the remake’s screenplay, according to THR.
“Listen, it’s fun, it’s an honor when I got the opportunity to produce it, reboot the whole movie, man, I had so much fun as a kid watching that movie,” James shared on Tuesday. “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.”
The “House Party” remake will be the first feature-length narrative film of SpringHill Entertainment. James, who was commended for his small role in the 2015 comedy “Trainwreck,” said that he might also ‘crash the party.’
“We’re going to have a lot of fun with it,” James shared. “I maybe even make a cameo in it, but we’ll see.”
