Reboots of classic films are either a hit or a terrible miss, but with LeBron James and Atlanta writers steering the ship, this remake of House Party looks promising already.
The Cavs all-star and his business partner Maverick Carter are producing the House Party reboot through their company Springhill Entertainment, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The project will be a revival of the 1990s classic that starred hip-hop duo Kid ‘n Play. The original film was followed by two sequels, one in 1991 and another in 1994. The third rendition of the franchise, House Party 3, also starred R&B trio TLC.
Donald Glover’s brother and Atlanta writer Stephen Glover will be composing the screenplay alongside fellow Atlanta writer Jamal Olori.
“This is definitely not a reboot. It’s an entirely new look for a classic movie,” LeBron told THR. “Everyone I grew up with loved House Party. To partner with this creative team to bring a new House Party to a new generation is unbelievable.”

Remake will be forgettable. House Party movie a classic . Kid n Play have some good songs
Th atoms as play
Nobody can replace Robin Harris.
Don't matter because it'll never be house party. As a matter of fact, please don't name it house party. The soundtrack already sound shitty. Drake is not REMOTELY the right artist for this. Get off his sack.
Would be a better idea if it was a sequel. Idk why the hell they thought it was a good idea to have Lebron James involved. There's nothing about him that screams House Party. If it was up to me, I would've done a direct sequel to House Party and brought back Kid N Play, Martin Lawrence, Full Force, Tisha Campbell, and A.J Johnson then bring in Kendrick Lamar as Play's son and J. Cole as Kid's son. Then you bring in Kevin Hart and some upcoming comedians. Have some old school music along with some really good throwback new songs and boom you have a proper sequel on your hands. It would attract both fans that are older and grew up with the original and new fans that are into the new music that are also fans of Kendrick and J. Cole. That would be a better fuckin idea than doing this reboot. This film is definitely gonna piss off a lot of the fans of the original House Party movies.
t.i can replace the legendary robin harris
t.i be somebody dad mike epps n lil duval be cops n then find two youngsters that know how to dance n yall can fill in tha rest
Stop don't fuck up a classic fr fr not for a Cornball basketball player

LET'S NOT FORGET THAT ANDROID 17 SACRIFICED HIS SELF TO SAVE GOKU AND VEGETTA
This does not mean it will be good, just throwing it out there cause it seems complex gets hard for anything drake, lebron or Atlanta related.
Rae Sremmurd are the only ones to get the job done
I don't think this will work because of the change n technology. Unless this party is gonna be as big as the Project X party. But a good teen party movie night work; especially if it's black. Throw some up and coming comedians in he mix, some SoundCloud rappers…. It might work
No good dancing no real funny jokes shit going to be wack watch
Please don't. House Party is my favorite movie of all time. It does not need to be re-made. There is no possible way to top that. The theme and essence of that movie can not be recreated in 2018. That movie's essence is tailored to the early 90s. Leave it alone.
Section while grant hypothesis shake alcohol plot mirror reporter name fellow pretend.
Here's an idea how about making an original fucking movie for once and stop cashing in on movies that already exist. No Kid and Play no House Party.
Casanova 2X needs to play one of the full force brothers.
I'm down to check it out
