“White Men Can’t Jump” is a classic American sports comedy. A reboot of the 1992 movie is in the works according to Hollywood Reporter.
The creator of ABC’s highly acclaimed show “Black-ish,” Kenya Barris, will write the script for the project and will also act as the film’s producer.
Barris is teaming up with Blake Griffin of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers and Ryan Kalil of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers to recreate the sports comedy.
Griffin and Kalil got involved by way of their Mortal Media banner, according to Hollywood Reporter.
There are also multiple reports indicating Griffin might make a cameo in the film.
The movie — starring Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson — focused on two ballers who team up to rip off their counterparts on the basketball court, using the “white men can’t jump” stereotype to their benefit.
There was some mixed reaction to the news, as some people are against remaking a classic.
Wherever you may stand on the remake, there’s no doubt the movie will sell tickets.
