Lebron James Officially Joins New Comedy Film!

We just discovered that NBA superstar LeBron James looks like he is going to end up in a comedy film!

As we reported several months ago, it now seems that the new film titled Fantasy Basketball Camp, from Universal-Imagine (which is a new sports comedy to which James is attached), has even bigger news as it finally landed a director in Malcolm D. Lee (of The Best Man, Soul Men, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins fame). Also, writer Peter Steinfeld has come aboard to write the new draft which we heard needed it. What’s even bigger news is the film was picked up to be produced by Brian Grazer.

The film Fantasy Basketball Camp centers on five men who come to Las Vegas to live out their fantasy by attending the LeBron James Adult Basketball Camp only to end up dragging James into their various life issues.

No word yet on who else will be joining the cast but we hear that calls are being placed to actors and some offers went out recently- but we can’t say to who-yet. Stay tuned to more info on this soon!
