LeBron James is about to flex his funny chops!
The 33-year-old basketball superstar is teaming up with writer Steve Mallory on an untitled comedy that was just sold to Paramount Players, Variety reported on Wednesday (July 11). And LeBron is also in early talks to star in the movie!
LeBron would also co-produce the movie, which has been in development for several months, alongside his SpringHill production partner Maverick Carter. This would be his second movie appearance, following his role (playing himself) in Trainwreck.
The move comes just after LeBron inked a four-year $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.
