LeBron James’ new production company Springhill Entertainment is setting up a movie based on a basketball hoax viral video.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Springhill and New Line have acquired the rights to the video from the Elite Daily sports website. James and Madica’s Jeff Tahley will produce the feature film, with Maverick Carter and Shawn Sachs executive-producing. Watch the video here:
The original hoax video stars Elite Daily writer Connor Toole, who tricks people into thinking he got drafted by the Utah Jazz in the second round of the NBA draft.
It looks like LeBron will never be too far away from basketball, even in the movie business. As of last summer he’s still hoping for a Space Jam 2.
