Grab your Gatorade and a stack of Benjamins because an official White Men Can’t Jump trailer is here to show you how to hustle players on the basketball court. The all-new comedy starts streaming on May 19, 2023, exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories.
Here’s the official synopsis:
White Men Can’t Jump is a modern retelling of the iconic 1992 film that celebrates the streetball hustling culture of Los Angeles. Sinqua Walls stars as Kamal, once a promising player who derailed his future in the sport, and multi-platinum rap superstar Jack Harlow makes his movie debut as Jeremy, a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his own career. Juggling tenuous relationships, financial pressures, and serious internal struggles, the two ballers—opposites who are seemingly miles apart—find they might have more in common than they imagined possible.
Calmatic directs the White Men Can’t Jump reboot from a script by Kenya Barris and Doug Hall. Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Vince Staples, Myles Bullock, and Lance Reddick are joining Harlow and Walls in the basketball comedy.
The White Men Can’t Jump reboot is a fresh take on Ron Shelton’s 1992 sports comedy starring Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes, and Rosie Perez. The original film follows Black and White basketball hustlers who join forces to double their chances of winning money on the street courts and in a tournament. Harlow will step into the role played by Harrelson, with Walls playing Snipes’ role. According to reports, Harlow scored the role after his first-ever screen audition. Barris was reportedly blown away by Harlow’s performance, as were the executives and filmmakers. As a bonus, Harlow also has some moves on the court. He participated in an NBA All-Star Weekend’s Celebrity Game last year, where he held his own on the court and then some.
In the new White Men Can’t Jump trailer, Walls and Harlow display lots of charm and chemistry as they strive to win a $500,000 prize pool. Walls’ Kamal is facing financial trouble, while Harlow’s Jeremy is looking to make a name for himself on and off the court. The remake features the late Lance Reddick in one of his final roles before he suddenly died of ischemic heart disease and atherosclerotic coronary artery disease on March 17, 2023.
