Lebron James seems to be planning his life after his NBA career is over. After recently signing with the Los Angeles Lakers and living in L.A., it is also in talks that he will star in an untitled comedy movie that was sold to Paramount Players. SpringHill Entertainment, James’s production company, has been working on the film with Steve Mallory who helped write “The Boss,” which starred Melissa McCarthy. Lebron will be producing the film alongside Maverick Carter.
The production company has already been a part of projects such as a Muhammad Ali documentary, a remake of “House Party,” and the Netflix series “On Her Own.” Lebronnnnnnn has acting experience, being praised for his role in “Trainwreck,” where he was called “the funniest person” by The New Yorker. That’s a huge compliment considering he was among cast members like Amy Schumer and Bill Hader. Schumer also commented saying, “…with full confidence… I believe he could have another career in acting if he wanted.”
