LeBron James to star in film with Kevin Hart

LeBron James has signed on with Kevin Hart to star in “Ballers”, a basketball comedy from Universal Pictures, according to Deadline.com.

Hart will 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.


James has been looking to make his feature starring

debut in this film

for a couple of years, but it has taken time to get this project off the

ground.


The plan is to start production next summer when James has time

off.
