WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP Getting Remade

In terms of remakes, reboots, reimaginings and redos, you can now add 1992’s White Men Can’t Jump to the list.

The Hollywood Reporter has word that a new take on the Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes-starrer will be written and produced by Kenya Barris, best known for creating ABC’s Black-ish. LA Clippers’ Blake Griffin and Carolina Panthers’ Ryan Kalil will be producing under their Mortal Media banner alongside Noah Weinstein. At present, Mortal Media are also developing a Rocketeer reboot and Barris is working on another Shaft remake. Oh, original ideas, whatever happened to those...

The original White Men Can’t Jump saw Harrelson and Snipes as a pair of street basketball hustlers, with Harrelson as loveable loser Billy and Snipes as the far savvier Sidney. Rosie Perez also starred as Gloria, the long-suffering, fiery girlfriend of Billy. The film took $90 million upon its release, and it has since gone on to become a favourite of many a movie fan.

Expect more on this as it develops.
