New details have surfaced about LeBron James’ upcoming “House Party” remake.
Reportedly, Calmatic, the director behind the music video for “Old Town Road (Remix),” will direct the film, which will be produced by LeBron and his SpringHill Entertainment partner Maverick Carter.
Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori from FX’s Atlanta wrote the new script.
The original film debuted in 1990 and starred Kid and Play of the popular hip hop duo Kid ‘n Play, and also stars Paul Anthony, Bow-Legged Lou and B-Fine from Full Force, and Robin Harris (who died of a heart attack nine days after House Party was released). The film also starred Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, A.J. Johnson, Daryl “Chill” Mitchell and Gene “Groove” Allen (of Groove B. Chill), Kelly Jo Minter, John Witherspoon, with a cameo by funk musician George Clinton. This was one of Harris’ final acting roles before his death.
