LeBron Rebooting ‘House Party’ With ‘Atlanta’ Writers

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.”

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.
