Heat star LeBron James reportedly going to Hollywood
DEC 05, 2013 10:43a ET
Variety reported James will co-star with Kevin Hart in a comedy called "Ballers."
James apparently will play an NBA superstar -- shocking! -- whose brother gets the chance to prove himself at a weekend fantasy basketball camp.
Hart reportedly will co-write the script for Universal and Imagine Entertainment.
According to the Huffington Post, the film was first in development in 2009 and twice has been delayed because of James' schedule.
James will be the latest Heat player to go Hollywood. Ray Allen co-starred in the Spike Lee film "He Got Game" as high school basketball phenomenon Jesus Shuttlesworth.
Dwyane Wade and his production company, ZZ Productions, recently announced they had sold a television sitcom to FOX based on the guard’s life and his book, "A Father First."
