“White Men Can’t Jump” is a classic sports-comedy movie from 1992 that starred Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson. The film was a huge hit and became a cult classic, thanks to its hilarious storyline and fantastic performances by the actors. Now, over three decades later, Hulu has announced that they will be bringing back the story in a brand new film, with Jack Harlow in the lead role.
The original movie followed the story of Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) and Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson), two streetball hustlers who team up to make a living off their basketball skills. The movie was set in Los Angeles and showcased the unique subculture of street basketball that exists in urban areas across the US.
The new film will follow a similar plotline, with Jack Harlow starring opposite Sinqua Walls. Harlow is a rising star in the music industry and has recently made a name for himself as an actor as well. He has appeared in TV shows like “Love, Victor” and “Celebrity Family Feud,” but this will be his biggest acting role to date.
One of the biggest challenges that the new show will face is living up to the legacy of the original movie. “White Men Can’t Jump” has a huge following, and fans of the movie will undoubtedly be eager to see how the remake stacks up. However, with Harlow’s star power and the backing of Hulu, the show has a good chance of success.
