Brian Grazer (of 8 Mile fame) is producing a movie titled “Fantasy Basketball Camp,” and the film will feature none other than our own No. 23. Though the character he will be playing may not be all too hard to reign in from an acting standpoint…
The Cavaliers superstar and reigning NBA MVP will make his feature film debut by playing himself in an upcoming comedy.
James will appear in “Fantasy Basketball Camp” by Universal Pictures. The movie is about five guys from different backgrounds who go to Las Vegas to live out their fantasy by attending James’ basketball camp. Production will begin next summer — when James can become a free agent.
Grazer claims that James’ work on Saturday Night Live coupled with his various commercial spots have led him to believe that the MVP can get the job done on the silver screen. This summer has been all about More Than a Game. Next year, James will make the jump from documentary to full length comedy. Naturally, James – along with Maverick Carter – will have production rights on the film.
