LeBron James is making another move towards cultural icon status. This time, he is getting into the movie business.

James’ production company, SpringHill have sold the film rights of a ‘body swapping comedy’ to Paramount. The living basketball legend is set to star in the movie. No doubt James will star alongside a stereotypically nerdy comedy actor as is typical of the genre.

The script was written by Spring Hill resident writer, Steve Mallory. James is on board the project in a producer role. 

LeBron’s name was all over the headlines during the NBA playoffs. Although the Cavaliers did not win in the NBA finals, his showing over the course of the season led to cries of James being the G.O.A.T. 

LeBron’s influence over the sport and entertainment industry could become all encompassing if his production company is successful.
