Variety reports that LeBron James will make his feature starring debut, playing himself in Fantasy Basketball Camp, a Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment comedy.
Brian Grazer is producing. Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel are writing the script.
The film is a comedy about five guys from different backgrounds who come to Vegas to live out their fantasy by attending the LeBron James Adult Basketball Camp. While it should be enough that these dreamers get to breathe the same oxygen as their hero, the campers drag James into their various life issues, ranging from serious to idiotic.
Filming is expected to start next summer.
