Quavo’s wishes of starring in the reboot of “White Men Can’t Jump” with Jack Harlow have come to an end.
“The film will offer a new take on Ron Shelton’s 1992 sports comedy, starring Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes and Rosie Perez, which saw Black and white basketball hustlers join forces to double their chances of winning money on the street courts and in a basketball tournamen,” reports DEADLINE. “White Men Can’t Jump recently celebrated its 30th anniversary at the 94th Academy Awards, with Harrelson, Snipes and Perez in attendance.”
Quavo threw his name in the bucket to play this role during a run-in with TMZ and also praised Jack, saying the boy “can do any and everything.”
“I think they need to call me, so me and Jack Harlow can do it,” Quavo said. “I need to play Wesley Snipes’ role.”
As previouslt reported Harlow will step into the role played by Woody Harrelson.
While Quavo won’t be making an appearance, Director Calmatic has seemingly recruited plenty of high-profile video credits with the likes of Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas X, among others. Plus, “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris is co-writing the flim.
