20th Century Studios is currently developing a new reboot of the classic 1990s film, “White Men Can’t Jump”, which is about a pair of Black and white basketball hustlers joining forces to double their chances of winning money on the street courts and in a basketball tournament.

It’s been previously revealed that Jack Harlow and Sinqua Walls are going to be starring in the main roles, which were played by Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes in the original film.
