LeBron James to Produce ‘House Party’ Remake for New Line

“Atlanta” writers Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori to pen script for reboot of 1990 comedy

LeBron James has signed on to produce a remake of the 1990 Kid ‘n Play hip-hop comedy “House Party” for New Line Cinema.

Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori, a two-time Writers Guild Award winner for “Atlanta,” will script the new version, which will follow young people at a house party that goes terribly, horribly wrong.

NBA star James will produce with Maverick Carter in conjunction with their SpringHill Entertainment banner.

Writer-director Reginald Hudlin made his feature debut on the original 1990 comedy, which he adapted from a short film of the same name.

The film starred hip-hop duo Kid ‘n Play, a.k.a. Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin, as high schoolers who decide to host a party while Kid’s parents are on vacation.

The film became an indie hit, grossing more than $26 million domestically, and spawned two sequels in 1991 and 1994.
