20th Century Studios have shared a ‘first-look’ teaser for the upcoming remake of ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ starring Jack Harlow in his acting debut. Harlow’s casting in the film was announced last March, after his first-ever screen audition. Harlow is an avid basketball superfan, and he was a star player in last year’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.
Harlow portrays Jeremy alongside Sinqua Walls, who plays the role of Kamal. Their characters embody the roles of Sidney and Billy from the original ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ flick from 1992, starring Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes, respectively. Staying true to the original film’s plot line, the new teaser follows Jeremy and Kamal — avid basketball players who downplay their skills in street matches to hustle others out of their betting money.
Directed by Charles Kidd II and written by ‘Black-ish’ creator Kenya Barris, the ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ remake will stream on Hulu in the US (and Disney+ internationally) starting May 19. You can watch the teaser trailer – here.
