Outside of music, if you had to define Jack Harlow with three key traits, they’d have to be charm, comedic chops, and the ability to ball. Now, the hip-hop superstar behind ‘What’s Poppin’ and ‘First Class’ is putting all of the above to the test with his Hollywood debut: 20th Century Studio’s White Men Can’t Jump reboot.

Directed by music video veteran Calmatic and written by Kenya Barris & Doug Hall (Black-ish), the story will obviously draw inspiration from Ron Shelton’s cult classic 1992 sports comedy film of the same name – two streetballers who initially try to hustle one another team up to hustle others for a bigger score.

Harlow portrays Jeremy, the modern answer to Woody Harrelson’s Billy Hoyle from the original, while co-star Sinqua Walls portrays Kamal Allen, the latest iteration of Wesley Snipes’ Sidney “Syd” Deane.

Jack Harlow and Sinqua Wllas have been joined by yet another musical artist in Teyana Taylor – who’ll probably be the Rosie Perez of the cast – Laura Harrier, Tamera Kissen, Mayles Bullock, rapper Vince Staples, comedian Andrew Schulz, Zak Steiner, plus Lance Reddick as Benji Allen, Kamal’s father and former coach who suffers from MS (read: the story motivation).

NBA star Blake Griffin, Ryan Kalil, and Noah Weinstein have executive produced through their Mortal Media banner with Doug Hall and E. Brian Dobbins.

20th Century Studio’s White Men Can’t Jump reboot has officially set a May 19th, 2023 release date – check out the first teaser trailer above.
