LeBron James to Star in Sports Comedy


Apr 6, 2010

LeBron James has been following Michael Jordan's career path in the NBA, but the Cavaliers forward will also take a shot at mirroring Jordan's acting career.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, James will star in director Malcolm D. Lee's sports comedy, Fantasy Basketball Camp. Lee, whose film credits include Undercover Brother, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins and Soul Men, is a cousin of Knicks fan Spike Lee.

The film focuses on five men who attend the LeBron James Adult Basketball Camp in Las Vegas. However, the plot goes deeper as James becomes involved in each of the men's lives. 

A new script is being written for the film, this time by Peter Steinfeld, a screenwriter whose credits include 21, Be Cool and Analyze That.

No release date for the film has been announced.
