Despite their 18 inch height difference, Kevin Hart and LeBron James are set to play brothers in a new film called Ballers.
According to sources, the comedian and NBA champion will star in the baseball comedy, which will follow “a man (played by Hart) who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James), but gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami.”

Deadline reports that Hart is co-writing the film with scripting teammates Joey Wells, Chris Spencer and Harry Ratchford.
The script was first written by Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, with Peter Steinfeld. Meanwhile, Hart has been making stuff happen all over town. He stars for Universal with Ice Cube in Ride Along, and the studio is so bullish that a sequel is already well along; after scoring a hit in Think Like A Man, Hart will be heading the cast in that sequel as well. He also completed a reboot of About Last Night, and is starring for Chris Rock in Finally Famous. He has the charisma to help James make the transition to acting like Michael Jordan did in Space Jam when MJ was the NBA’s best player.
Production is scheduled to start next summer when James has time off. The will be the first feature film for the Miami Heat star.
