If you're a fan of Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and/or basketball movies, you should be hype: 1992's White Men Can't Jump turns 25 this March. In what seems to be turning into a trend, the 25-year celebration includes word of a White Men Can't Jump remake. I was tripping when I saw the news on The Hollywood Reporter, but was super intrigued when Black-ish creator Kenya Barris was attached to the project as producer.
For those who remember, Barris signed a film deal with Fox back in September of 2016; this would be a part of that deal. Also attached to the project are Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Giffin and Carolina Panther Ryan Kalil, who have a production company known as Mortal Media along with partner Noah Weinstein.
As of now, there's no word on when this project would be hitting theaters, or who would be stepping into Wesley and Woody's Nikes, but with Barris attached to it (and certified NBA stars like Griffin more than likely helping keep things authentic), it should be a treat for fans of street ball and comedy.
One wish, though: whatever you do, keep it just as raunchy and hilarious as the original. Don't PG-13 this classic!
