White Men Can’t Jump Reboot: Jack Harlow and Sinqua Walls hustle players on the court in a first-look teaser

In Hulu’s White Men Can’t Jump reboot teaser, Jack Harlow and Sinqua Walls bring their brand of hustle to the B-Ball court.

20th Century Studios is hitting the court this Monday with a White Men Can’t Jump reboot teaser. In addition to the TV spot, a first-look image of Jack Harlow and Sinqua Walls as the film’s stars is making the rounds. The White Men Can’t Jump reboot begins streaming on May 19, 2023, exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories.

Per today’s official press release for White Men Can’t Jump:

White Men Can’t Jump is a modern remix of the iconic 1992 film that celebrates the streetball hustling culture of Los Angeles. Multi-platinum rap superstar Jack Harlow makes his movie debut as Jeremy, a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his career, and Sinqua Walls stars as Kamal, once a promising player who derailed his own future in the sport. Juggling tenuous relationships, financial pressures, and serious internal struggles, the two ballers—opposites who are seemingly miles apart—find they might have more in common than they imagined possible.

Calmatic directs the White Men Can’t Jump reboot from a script by Kenya Barris and Doug Hall. Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Vince Staples, Myles Bullock, and Lance Reddick are joining Harlow and Walls in the basketball comedy.

The White Men Can’t Jump reboot is a fresh take on Ron Shelton’s 1992 sports comedy starring Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes, and Rosie Perez. The original film follows Black and White basketball hustlers who join forces to double their chances of winning money on the street courts and in a tournament. Harlow will step into the role played by Harrelson, with Walls playing Snipes’ role. According to reports, Harlow scored the role after his first-ever screen audition. Barris was reportedly blown away by Harlow’s performance, as were the executives and filmmakers. As a bonus, Harlow also has some moves on the court. He participated in an NBA All-Star Weekend’s Celebrity Game last year, where he held his own on the court and then some.
