Another reboot/remake is in the air!
What’s being rebooted this time? House Party!
LeBron James’ SpringHill Entertainment is producing the remake to the 1990 cult classic starring Kid ‘n Play. The remake will be scripted by Atlanta writers Stephen Glover (Donald Glover’s younger brother) and Jamal Olori.
James says, however, this is not a “reboot.”
“This is definitely not a reboot. It’s an entirely new look for a classic movie. Everyone I grew up with loved House Party. To partner with this creative team to bring a new House Party to a new generation is unbelievable,” he told The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the news.
“We’re trying out some ideas for musicians to be cast in and to be a part of the project,” said Maverick Carter, LeBron James’ partner in SpringHill.
This would be SpringHill’s first narrative feature, as they say their Space Jam remake starring LeBron is “a ways off.”
Other things they have lined up include a Netflix event series on Madam C.J. Walker starring Octavia Spencer and a Starz docuseries, Warriors of Liberty City. A SpringHill pilot is also in development at ABC, White Dave, which is also exec produced by Gabrielle Union.
