Slam Dunk: LeBron James To Star Alongside Kevin Hart In New Comedy ‘Ballers’

Published

It’s a slam dunk for LeBron James, the NBA champ can officially add movie star to his resume.

According to Deadline.com, the Heat player will play alongside Kevin Hart in the forthcoming Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment comedy, Ballers.

In the film, Hart will play a man who “lives in the shadows 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.”

Kevin, who is known for his pure comedic timing, will re-write the Ballers script which was first developed back in 2009, before jumping in front of the camera. James has been planning his big screen debut for a couple of years now, but the film has taken some time to get off the ground.

Production is set to begin next summer during LeBron’s off season.

Lets think about this … Kevin Hart 5’3″ and LeBron 6’8″ standing side by side for an entire film? Yup, sure to be a hit.
