Hulu has released the trailer for the remake of the classic sports comedy, White Men Can’t Jump.
Talks of a potential remake had been floating around for over half a decade, but the film seemed to get fast-tracked once rapper Jack Harlow was cast.In the original film, street hoopers Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) and Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) meet after Sidney is hustled on the basketball court by Billy after Sydney underestimates Billy due to Billy being White. The two form an unlikely partnership and hustle other street ballers and tournaments for money. Judging by the trailer, the remake follows a similar plot with a few minor differences, such as the characters’ names.
The upcoming film also boasts a star-studded cast that includes Vince Staples, Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, and the late Lance Reddick — all of whom appear in the trailer. Kenya Barris is a co-writer on the film, while video director Calmatic was tasked with directing. DJ Drama is also handling the film’s soundtrack. White Man Can’t Jump is scheduled to premiere on Hulu on May 19.
