(AllHipHop News) Michael Jordan saved the world from an alien invasion in 1996’s Space Jam, Lebron James will help a few ballers. Kevin Hart has joined on to Universal Pictures and Lebron James’ often delayed movie Ballers.
Hart will co-star and rewrite the movie’s script which will put Hart as James’ brother who “gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami” according to Deadline.
The movie will mark James’ acting debut and would have occurred earlier if the film production did not coincide with Lebron’s most successful years as an NBA player. Production on the film was halted on July 2nd, 2010 to give James time of rest in the offseason. Less than a week later, James made The Decision and joined the Miami Heat. The film was halted again following Lebron and the Miami Heat’s defeat in the 2011 NBA Finals.
Lebron’s first showcases of his acting talent appeared in his Nike commercial featuring The Three Lebrons for the 2006-2007 NBA season. Check out that commercial below:
