Christopher Martin — one half of the iconic rap duo Kid ‘n Play — says the “House Party” reboot is in great hands with LeBron James … telling TMZ Sports the NBA superstar is working nonstop to make sure the movie is a success.
As we previously reported, the modern version of KnP’s iconic flick has been delayed a bit … with star actor Jacob Latimore saying it was for the best.
It’s Tricky with Raquel Harper
We spoke with Martin at LAX about the project … and he said he heard from sources — AKA King James himself — the reason behind the pushback is because it will be a theatrical release instead of on HBO Max as originally planned.
Speaking of the King, Martin couldn’t say enough nice things about the hooper/big time producer … adding he’s “very involved” and has “complete ownership” over the operation.
To top things off, Martin says LeBron even hooked him up with some of his signature Nike shoes … which he was wearing when we spoke with him!!
Also — we know what everyone’s asking … will Kid ‘n Play make it into the reboot??
Martin plays it cool … but if you know anything about reading between the lines, he really means, “HECK YES!!!”
