Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and Tosin Cole in talks to star in New Line’s house party reboot with LeBron James producing

More than 30 years after the original House Party was released in theaters, the cast are reuniting for the New Line Cinema reboot.

Acclaimed music video director Calmatic, who directed the Old Town Road video for Lil Nas X, is set to debut with the reboot.

The original film followed Kid (Christopher ‘Kid’ Reid) and Play (Christopher ‘Play’ Martin) as the latter plans an epic house party.

The party turns out to be the most incredible night of their young lives as they deal with curious neighbors (John Witherspoon, Bebe Drake), Kid’s strict dad (Robin Harris) and a thug trio (Paul Anthony, Bowlegged Lou and B-Fine from Full Force).

The film marked Reginald Hudlin’s (Boomerang) writing and directing debut and helped legitimize hip-hop as a musical art form.

James and Carter were both big fans of the original film, which still holds a “ special place ” in their hearts, with New Line seeing the franchise potential in the reboot.

Original writer-director Reginald Hudlin and original producer Warrington Hudlin will executive produce along with SpringHill’s Spencer Beighley and Jamal Henderson.

Now that the lead men have been found, the cast will be focusing on their female counterparts, with a number of surprise cameos in the works.
