In 1992, "White Men Can't Jump" hit theaters and captured the hearts of audiences everywhere with its charismatic cast, including Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes, and Rosie Perez. The film followed the journey of two basketball hustlers as they navigated the court, and now, a new generation will be able to experience the same excitement as a remake of the beloved film is in the works.
Introducing the New Cast
The upcoming film will feature rapper Jack Harlow and "Teen Wolf's" Sinqua Walls in leading roles, accompanied by a talented ensemble cast including Myles Bullock, Vince Staples, Lance Reddick, Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Tamera 'Tee' Kissen, and more.
The studio behind the film, 20th Century Studios, announced the film's release on YouTube with the following statement, "Play hard, hustle harder. White Men Can't Jump, starring Sinqua Walls and Jack Harlow, streaming May 19 on Hulu."
A Fresh Take on a Classic Story
Director Calmatic shared his vision for the film, stating, "We're taking some elements, like a white guy and a black guy playing basketball, but we're flipping it.
We've got a whole new story, whole new approach, whole new tempo, whole new rhythm, but it's gonna be something that everyone can enjoy." Calmatic continued, "I can't wait for the world to see that one. I think that's gonna be great, as well...It's definitely coming out this year."
Jack Harlow: Looking Forward
In a recent interview with Variety, Jack Harlow discussed his career aspirations, saying, "Sometimes artists will assume characters for a verse or a feature — Kendrick does that, Em had it with Slim Shady, and sometimes in the studio my engineer will even encourage me to 'get out of Jack Harlow.'
That's something I'd have to work on intentionally, and maybe I will... Especially now, I work out of fear ... I'm terrified to fall off and lose my spot or lose the ground I've covered, or not reach the potential that people see.
Every time I sit courtside at these games or go to the Met Gala or maybe the Grammys, what's in my head is 'I've gotta be here next year.' I don't want this to be the last time." "White Men Can't Jump" is set to stream on Hulu starting May 19, bringing a new take on a classic story to audiences everywhere. With a talented cast and a fresh perspective, the film is sure to be a hit.
