LeBron James has been keeping himself busy since moving to Los Angeles to join the Lakers this summer, both on and off the court. Now the kid from Akron is adding another project to his plate: a movie about himself.
According to Variety, LeBron and his producing partner Maverick Carter with SpringHill Entertainment are moving forward with a movie based on the book “Shooting Stars” written by LeBron about his youth basketball team.
The story is a true-life narrative about how he and his childhood friends beat the odds and won a national championship in seventh grade.
The movie is set to be directed by Chris Robinson, the highly accredited director who headed the Jay-Z and Beyonce “03 Bonnie and Clyde” music video and the FOX series “Star.”
In addition to this upcoming movie, LeBron is working on several other Hollywood projects, including reboots of “Friday the 13th” and “House Party” along with multiple TV shows.
LeBron’s biographical film does not have a release date scheduled at this time.
