There are some movies and TV shows that have done a really good job of being remade and there are some that we question why they were even in discussions to be remade.
The House Party remake is one of the ones that lots of people were wondering why you would even touch it to remake.
It was set to debut in late July but it didn’t and now HBO has announced that they are shelving the film for the time being. There is no word why exactly but this is probably the right decision.
LeBron James and Springhill Entertainment Company’s House Party reboot has officially been put on hold. Produced by the NBA superstar and his The Shop co-host Maverick Carter, the reboot was announced in 2018 with SpringHill Entertainment and New Line Cinema set to deliver the film. Directed by Grammy Award-winning filmmaker Calmatic, House Party centered two high schoolers who throw a party in James’ house, resulting in the loss of his championship rings. Atlanta co-writers Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori also wrote the script.
Set to star singer-actor Jacob Latimore, Tosin Cole, DC Young Fly, Melvin Gregg, Rotimi and Bill Bellamy, the film was originally planned to debut on July 28, be quietly scrubbed from the HBO Max release calendar.
The remake was part of the Lebron James led production company SpringhHill, and they have had some decent movies so I’m sure they will have more. Just have to go back to the drawing board.
To be fair though, most thought the Fresh Prince of Bel Air didn’t need to be remade but it was done very well so maybe House Party could be the same.
