WHITE MEN CAN’T JUMP Remake in the Works

WHITE MEN CAN’T JUMP Remake in the Works

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris is set to team up with Los Angeles Clippers player Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers to develop a remake of the 1992 sports comedy White Men Can’t Jump for 20th Century Fox.

Kenya Barris is set to write the script for the project, which falls under his overall film deal with Fox.

Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson starred in the original film that followed two street basketball hustlers who at first try to hustle each other, so when they join forces, nothing can stop them and go for a bigger score. Also figuring into the equation was Harrelson’s character’s longtime girlfriend, played by Rosie Perez, whose dream is to appear on Jeopardy!.

The original White Men Can’t Jump was directed by Ron Shelton and earned over $90 million worldwide.

So what do you think of this remake? Let us know below.
