White Men Can't Jump set for remake

Cult drama White Men Can't Jump looks set to be given a remake. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the remake is being spearheaded by Blackish creator Kenya Barris, who is teaming up with athletes-turned-producers Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil to make the new version. Barris will also write the script for the new movie. 

The original was released in 1992 and was written and directed by Ron Shelton, who would go on to direct golf drama Tin Cup.

It starred Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes as two street basketball hustlers who at first try to hustle each other, then team up for a bigger score. There is no word on who will star in the new movie, which is being made by 20th Century Fox.
