LeBron James Movie Gets The Hook

The proposed comedy involving three men at a LeBron James fantasy camp has been removed from the schedule, according to indieWIRE.  In layman's terms, that means the studio pulled the plug on the project.  If you remember, "Ballers" was supposed to be shot this past summer but was delayed when LeBron James' 'popularity' took a dive after "The Decision".

That delay has now become a full-blown forget it!

The L.A. Times also reported another release change, completely taking the Lowell Ganz/Babaloo Mandel-penned comedy "Ballers" off the schedule. The film, about a group of men at a LeBron James fantasy camp, had a November release date planned, and was to shoot this summer. But the act of completely skull-f***** the sports community of Cleveland in order to have year-round summer camp with friends in Miami kept James from meeting his obligations.

The beat goes on in the fading star that is LeBron James
