Jack Harlow is set to make his acting debut in a huge way after landing the lead role in the remake for 20th Century’s reboot of White Men Can’t Jump.
According to Deadline, Harlow crushed his first-ever screen audition and impressed filmmakers and execs, including black-ish creator Kenya Barris, who co-wrote the script alongside Doug Hall. Harlow will be playing the same role as Woody Harrelson did in the 1992 film opposite Wesley Snipes, as they played two street basketball hustlers who try and hustle one another but later team-up. Brooklyn Nets forward Blake Griffin will executive produce the reboot alongside Ryan Kalil and Noah Weinstein under their Mortal Media company. Filmmaker Calmatic, who will make his feature debut this year with the House Party reboot, will also direct White Men Can’t Jump.
