LeBron James’ Movie Delayed Once Again

Perhaps Hollywood is waiting for LeBron’s popularity to bounce back before they put him up there on the silver screen. Variety reports: “LeBron James will have to wait at least another year to make his Hollywood debut. The Miami Heat forward has been attached to star in Universal/Imagine’s sports comedy ‘Ballers’ since September 2009, and after an initial yearlong delay to accommodate his summer 2010 free agency, production was pushed to next month. However, in the wake of Miami’s NBA Finals loss to the Dallas Mavericks, exec producer Michael Rosenberg told Variety that because the script is still being developed, ‘we are not shooting this summer.’ Story follows five guys who attend the LeBron James Adult Basketball Camp in Las Vegas, but end up dragging the phenom into their myriad life issues.”

    they are afraid lebron wont show up for the 4th quarter of production

    The script is still being developed, they’re waiting for him to have a post move, no wonder why this movie is delayed.


    They should call it… “This LeBoy’s Life” …A son, his mother, and his entourage flee Ohio and the “abusive” Cavs OWNER (Gilbert) to find a new life, and end up in Miami with the Heat. The LeBoy continually gets into trouble with the media due to hanging out with the wrong “YES Bron Born” crowd. CAN’T WAIT to see this FLICK!

    If LeBron wasn’t such an arrogant prick….

    This movie sounds really _________ no grant hill.


    Are you freakin serious. Hollywood couldn’t come up with a better movie story line than this. Two thumbs down before production with some added piss droppings on the script.

    Just another great offseason project for him. Not like he has any glaring weaknesses in his game, right? Oh.. wait..

    I wonder if the script would still be in development if the Heat had won and everyone jumped back on the Heat bandwagon. This movie sounds like as good an idea as Kazaam.

  • rich

    This movie is a Kazaam waiting to happen. Lebron is such a terrible actor he makes Michael Cera look like Matt Damon

  • O

    Terrible actor?!?! Did you see the flops he performed during the playoffs?! This kid is OSCAR bound!!!

    This sounds like it would make a much better cartoon than a live movie. Like that old MVP one with Michael Jordan, Gretzky, and Bo Jackson. Or that one about that kid with the yellow shirt and bald head and his pet Beagle, who never wins anything.

    Those cats will have to wait another 2-3 years before finally releasing that joint!

    For the movie’s sake let us all hope that it doesn’t get delayed until the 4th quarter of the year, we all know how he performs in the 4th…
