We’re all for this. Associated Press reported Wednesday morning that LeBron James’ company, SpringHill Entertainment, agreed to a content deal with Warner Bros. Studios which will open up the possibility for film, TV, and other digital media works between the two parties.
The NBA titan is executive producer of the comedy “Survivor’s Remorse” on Starz and founded the athlete web-series/website Uninterrupted. He says he has a passion for “telling meaningful stories.” Both Uninterrupted and SpringHill Entertainment were created with and are co-run by his agent Maverick Carter.
We hope that this contract includes a mandatory James cameo in each potential show or movie. A Space Jam remake would especially make sense: Lebron is essentially the Michael Jordan of his generation, and Warner Bros. made the first film in 1996 and has access to all the Looney Tune characters. The revival seems like a slam dunk.
As you may recall, the Cavalier graced the silver screen for first time in the Judd Apatow/Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck, which opened last Friday. In the film he played himself, albeit with a highly sensitive, supportive personality of the sort that is stereotypically is assigned to the role of the female best friend in a romcom.
