  • LeBron James May Star in New Comedy Project for Paramount Players

LeBron James, scribe Steve Mallory, and James' SpringHill Entertainment have sold an untitled comedy pitch to Paramount Players, with the National Basketball Association icon in early talks to star.

SpringHill and Mallory have been developing the film for several months. Mallory would pen the script. Jamal Henderson and Spencer Beighley will oversee the project for SpringHill. He had a cameo as himself in Judd Apatow's "Trainwreck". Ali Bell and Gabby Canton are handling the project for Paramount Players.

If this is a body-swap comedy, Kevin Hart seems like the heavy favorite to be the star opposite LeBron, as that seems to be the most logical "what would be funny" low-hanging fruit, considering the considerable size difference between Hart and James.

While his family situation and the opportunity to put his son Bronny Jr. into a top-flight high school for hoops may have played a bigger role, it hasn't taken long for LeBron to take advantage of being in Los Angeles full-time. His company recently sold the spec "Hustle" to Legendary Entertainment, with James producing with Roth/Kirschenbaum. As Variety also points out, James is also a producer on New Line's House Party remake, and on the Octavia Spencer-led limited series On Her Own Ground from Netfilx.

He is represented by WME and Ziffren Brittenham.
