LeBron James Is Bringing Back “House Party”
This is definitely my type of hype!
If you’ve never watched the movie “House Party,” you definitely remember the hi-top fades, the oversized slacks, and oh yeah, this iconic dance-off.
With the nostalgic craze of bringing back everything late 80s/90s from fashion to shows and films in today’s day and age, it seems fitting that King James would be the one to reboot the franchise that made the Funky Charleston, an urban dance known for it’s swinging kick steps between two dance partners, a popular move that still resonates on a lot of dance floors today.
LeBron James and business partner Maverick Carter are producing a new version of “House Party,” the comedy featuring hip-hop duo Kid ‘N Play that debuted in 1990.
James said Tuesday in Oklahoma City. “When I was growing up as a youngster I was like, ‘Man, I hope I get an opportunity to throw one of these house parties, where it’s just a lot of fun, a lot of joking around, dancin’, people just having a good time.'”
LeBron’s production company, SpringHill Entertainment, says the project is a “fresh re-imagining” of the original. The new film is being written by Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori from the FX series “Atlanta.”
Today’s house parties and the dance crazes have definitely changed quite a bit since those days. If this new “House Party” is supposed to be a “fresh reimagining” of the original movie, who knows, you may see a “Milly Rock” or two, people “Hittin Dem Folks,” or possibly even BlockBoy JB’s “Shoot Dance”
