Do You Want To See A Movie With Kevin Hart And Lebron James? Well You Have No Choice Because It's Officially Happening




EXCLUSIVE: Kevin Hart is signing on to star with LeBron James in Ballers, the basketball comedy for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment. Brian Grazer and Michael Rosenberg are producing.

Hart will first co-write the comedy along with his scripting teammates Joey Wells, Chris Spencer and Harry Ratchford. He’ll then star as a man who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James), but gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami.  Hart is certainly dominant in the stand-up arena, but posting up against this screen sibling could be dangerous. Hart is under 5’3? while James is a towering 6’8.” That kind of sibling size differential hasn’t been seen since Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in another Universal comedy, Twins. They’ll sign a director when Hart and his cohorts turn in the script. The plan is to start production next summer when James has time off.



Christmas comes early guys! First Daryl Wade gets his sitcom green lighted and now this. Kevin Hart and Lebron James in what is sure to be the cinematic event of the year. Like I don’t think you guys get it but Lebron James is really tall and Kevin Hart is really short so when you put them together….wait, nevermind, I don’t want to ruin it for everyone. Just get excited, because I sure as fuck am.



Here is what Lebron officially has to live up to in my mind. My top 3 NBA players in the movies.


3. Shaq in Kazaam


A rapping genie? Fuck yes times a million. Oscar worthy if I had all of the Oscar votes in 1996.



2. MJ in Spacejam



If you were a kid growing up in the 90’s and you haven’t seen Spacejam at least 100 times then there is something very wrong with you.




1. Ray Allen in He Got Game



I remember watching this movie with my entire family and when Ray Allen banged those two big tittied chicks in College, yeah that was pretty sweet.


Honorable Mentions – Shaq and Penny in “Blue Chips”, Gheorghe Muresan in “My Giant”, Dennis Rodman in “Double Team” (A JCVD joint), Kareem in “Airplane”, and Darius Miles in “The Perfect Score” (total blast from the past)





Full Disclosure – I originally read the headline as Kevin James and Lebron and I was actually pretty pumped for it. I think that makes me racist.
