Kevin Hart aka the world’s tinniest ball of comedic energy will star in BALLERS opposite LeBron James. The story follows five men who go to Las Vegas to live out their fantasy by attending the LeBron Adult Basketball Camp where they end up dragging LeBron into their various life issues. Hart will play a man who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James). I don’t always love Hart’s movies but I usually can’t help but love Hart’s contribution to them. Color me cautiously excited.
Hart will also co-re-write the script along with Joey Wells, Chris Spencer and Harry Ratchford. Brian Grazer will produce while James, Maverick Carter, Michael Rosenberg and Kim Roth executive produce.
Hart last appeared (briefly) in “This Is the End” and his own stand up special “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain.” He’ll next show up in “Ride Along” and “Grudge Match.”
He is repped by UTA.
