For years now, a movie about a group of men attending a LeBron James fantasy basketball camp has been in the works. It was to be King James' big step onto the big screen, a Hollywood venture with a big budget to follow More Than a Game, the indie doc on the St. Vincent St. Mary basketball team.
That project has finally been killed, which isn't shocking after James' popularity took a nosedive this summer.
The L.A. Times also reported another release change, completely taking the Lowell Ganz/Babaloo Mandel-penned comedy “Ballers” off the schedule. The film, about a group of men at a LeBron James fantasy camp, had a November release date planned, and was to shoot this summer. But the act of completely skull-fucking the sports community of Cleveland in order to have year-round summer camp with friends in Miami kept James from meeting his obligations.
