Adding to the list of remakes, White Men Can’t Jump which originally starred Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson is now being eyed to return to the big screen. Black-ish writer and creator Kenya Barris has been revealed to be apart of the project along with NBA All-Star Blake Griffin.
Kenya Barris is teaming up with athletes-turned-producers Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil for a new version of the 1992 sports comedy. White Men Can’t Jump is getting back into the game. Kenya Barris, the creator of ABC’s acclaimed comedy Black-ish, is teaming with Blake Griffin of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers and Ryan Kalil of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers to develop a remake of the 1992 sports comedy for 20th Century Fox. Barris will write the script for the project, which falls under his overall film deal with Fox that he signed in September. Barris also will act as a producer. Griffin and Kalil are producing via their Mortal Media banner, along with their partner Noah Weinstein. White Men Can’t Jump, written and directed by Ron Shelton, starred Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes as two street basketball hustlers who at first try to hustle each other, then team up for a bigger score.
If you can recall, Blake Griffin has showed us a few times that he has a comedic side outside of the basketball court so this should be interesting.
