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!
We get a chance to talk to comedian Red Grant about his new film that he wrote and more, and we get the scoop on all of the details of the filming now. We also speak to Red about other projects back stage at The Comedy Store during the Trippin' On Tuesday Comedy Show in Hollywood. Check out the interview!
As we reported last issue as an exclusive interview with Deon Cole, Cole became one of the only African American writers of the Tonite Show when O'Brien took over the reins of the show.
As we all know by now, the show has shifted back to comedian Jay Leno and Conan was let go of his duties as the host, but word has leaked to numerous amount of outlets that Conan may jump back into late night talk with the FOX network.
Regardless of how that pans out, it looks like the Tour is going to hit Ireland, Finland, Canada, England and of course here in the United States.
