Wesley Snipes is up for a sequel to White Men Can't Jump

05.13.2014by:

WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP remains one of the most memorable sports movies of all time. Hitting theaters two decades ago, Ron Shelton's street basketball movie showcased a (rare at the time) serious turn for Woody Harrelson. WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP was a phenomenally popular film upon release and to this day is a highly quotable flick.

With his release from prison and big screen return in this summer's THE EXPENDABLES 3, Wesley Snipes is looking for a career resurgence. The man who was Blade is 51 years old but that doesn't mean he isn't tempted by the idea of a sequel to a movie he starred in when he was 29. Here's what he told Total Film at the premiere of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

"Yeah, man, come on Woody [Harrelson], let's do it! Actually, they've been trying to get us to do something like that for awhile. We just have to figure out the script now."

Snipes could be all talk or simply hoping that the power of the Internet will jumpstart interest in a potential WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP sequel. And you know what? He's right! I would love to see these guys team up again. The pair recreated their chemistry in the mediocre buddy cop movie MONEY TRAIN and are due for another big screen romp together. Maybe the pair can partner up for the second season of TRUE DETECTIVE?

So, what do you say? Are you interested in a sequel to WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP?

Extra Tidbit: Nothing makes me feel quite as old as realizing a movie I saw when it hit VHS at my local video store is now 22 years old.

"…one of the most memorable sports movies of all time." WTF??!?

While it's questionable in the extreme to even call this a "sports movie" in the first place, White Man Can't Jump remains in this author's opinion one of the most vile, reprehensible, artistically irredeemable pieces of shit ever committed to film. I like Snipes, and I love Harrelson, but this complete pile of garbage was poorly scripted, poorly acted, poorly directed and had not a single sympathetic character in the entire cast. It was only memorable because of how terrible a movie it was.

They might be a little past due on that, but I would love to see them together in SOMETHING. I always thought Snipes was more interesting when he wasn't just busting heads and actually acted.

Eeek

Yea, don't do this. However, the first one still holds up as having some of the best and funniest dialogue of any movie ever made.

What, White Men In Walkers?

Who wants to see 50 year-old men hustling in a basketball movie? The original was fun, but hardly a great movie. It gave no room (or reason) for a sequel. So what's the point in revisiting it 20 years later? Ridiculously bad idea.

Who wants to see teenagers and people in their early 20s partying, racing cars and trying to act badass in paper thin action movies? We still have to suffer with them.
