Based on Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes's WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP (1992) movie, 20th Century Studios' new comedy by the same name is revamped as a new comedy for Hulu starting on May 19.
Rap artist Jack Harlow and Singua Walls star as different characters and set in Los Angeles. The below synopsis calls this reboot, a "modern remix" that celebrates streetball hustling culture in a new setting.
WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP is a modern remix of the iconic 1992 film that celebrates the streetball hustling culture of Los Angeles. Multi-platinum rap superstar Jack Harlow makes his movie debut as Jeremy, a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his career, and Sinqua Walls stars as Kamal, once a promising player who derailed his own future in the sport. Juggling tenuous relationships, financial pressures and serious internal struggles, the two ballers—opposites who are seemingly miles apart—find they might have more in common than they imagined possible.
Directed by Calmatic, the movie also stars Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Vince Staples, Myles Bullock and Lance Reddick. The film is written by Kenya Barris and Doug Hall. “White Men Can’t Jump” is produced by Kenya Barris and Paul Hall; it’s executive produced by Blake Griffin, Ryan Kalil, Noah Weinstein, Calmatic, Doug Hall, E. Brian Dobbins and James Powers.
