LeBron James to star in first feature film

Miami Heat forward LeBron James will star in a movie called “Ballers” with comedian Kevin Hart, reports Mike Fleming of Deadline.com.

According to the report, the movie will star Hart as “a man who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James), but gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami.”

Production is reportedly going to start next summer during the NBA offseason. It is an interesting casting choice, considering Hart is 5 foot 3 and James is 6 foot 8.

James did star in a documentary called “More than a Game,” which featured four of his high school basketball teammates from Akron, Ohio.

On the court this season, James is averaging 26 points, 6.3 assists, 5.8 rebounds and shooting nearly 60 percent.

More from Deadline.com:

James has been looking to make his feature starring debut in this film for a couple of years, but it has taken time to get this project off the ground.
