LeBron James’ Movie Delayed Once Again

by June 17, 2011

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.”
