According to Variety, James will be a producer on an untitled comedy film that just sold to Paramount Players that will be written by Steve Mallory (Melissa McCarthy comedies Boss and Super Intelligence).

SpringHill and Mallory have been developing the film for several months.

LeBron is set to produce the film with his SpringHill partner Maverick Carter. Paramount Players' Ali Bell and Gabby Canton are also involved with the project.

James is no stranger to movies, as he had a part in the Amy Schumer movie Trainwreck in which he played himself.

If this is a body-swap comedy, Kevin Hart seems like the heavy favorite to be the star opposite LeBron, as that seems to be the most logical "what would be funny" low-hanging fruit, considering the considerable size difference between Hart and James. On top of his National Basketball Association career, James has been busy producing upcoming projects such as New Line's House Party remake, reviving the comedy franchise that began in 1990 and starred the rap duo Kid 'N Play.

He is also a producer on the New Line remake of "House Party" as well an exec producer on the Netflix limited series "On Her Own Ground", starring Octavia Spencer.
