LeBron James has set up another project to produce, this time the basketball movie Hustle...
Hot off the heels of the announcement that he’ll be producing a House Party remake for New Line, NBA superstar and media mogul LeBron James has announced he’ll be producing an upcoming basketball film, Hustle.
Coming courtesy of LeBron’s SpringHill Entertainment and Legendary Entertainment, Hustle was a much-sought after spec script that was snatched up by Legendary’s Jay Ashenfelter. Written by in-demand screenwriter Taylor Materne, Hustle is centered on a down on his luck basketball scout who discovers a Chinese streetball prodigy and convinces him to travel to America to train for the NBA draft. While the young basketball talent deals with being a fish out of the water, the scout must deal with lingering family issues.
A former Ya novelist, Materne has a former Black List script
