Mark Wahlberg, LeBron James movie in the works

Posted on

NBC

Mark Wahlberg might soon score a Hollywood hit with NBA superstar LeBron James. 

The two-time Oscar nominee appeared on Tuesday night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon during which host Jimmy Fallon showed the audience a photo of the Cleveland Cavaliers player hanging out in Wahlberg’s home gym.  

“He and I are talking about doing a movie together,” Wahlberg revealed. “It’s actually a great idea. It’s based around the fantasy league, so these guys get to go to one of these fantasy camps, and me and LeBron have a situation.” 

James has steadily increased his on-screen profile in recent years, co-starring in the Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck in 2015, while he’s also set to appear in the upcoming Space Jam sequel, directed by Fast & Furious 6‘s Justin Lin. James is also an executive producer on the television series Survivor’s Remorse, which airs its season 3 finale on Sunday. 

Wahlberg’s latest film, Deepwater Horizon, hits theaters Sept. 30. Watch the actor talk about his potential collaboration with James in the video below.
