'White Men Can't Jump' Reboot Casts Sinqua Walls To Star Opposite Jack Harlow

The upcoming White Men Can’t Jump reboot, co-written by Kenya Barris, has found its second lead.

Sinqua Wallis has landed a lead role opposite previously-announced star, Jack Harlow– per Deadline.

The 20th Century Studios film is being directed by Calmatic with a script from Kenya Barris and Doug Hall.

Barris is producing through his Khalabo Ink Society banner along with Blake Griffin, Ryan Kalil, and Noah Weinstein, who are executive producing through their Mortal Media banner.

Calmatic, who directed the cinematic video for Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road,' is also directing the upcoming 'House Party' film on HBO Max.

The reboot of the classic 1992 sports comedy starring Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson with Rosie Perez sees Harlow in a role similar to Harrelson in the first film and Walls in a role similar to Snipes.

Walls recently starred in Netflix’s Resort to Love and can be seen in Nikyatu Jusu’s upcoming Amazon Studios/Blumhouse horror pic, Nanny.
