If a modern twist on nostalgic memories is your type of hype, get ready for the newest iteration of “House Party,” set to release in theaters in 2023 with the backing of Lakers superstar LeBron James.

James, who has a number of ventures in the entertainment industry, has had a major hand in the film, which is produced by his SpringHill Production Company, New Line Cinema as well as Warner Bros. Pictures.

In addition to his executive roles, James has also dabbled in acting, having a supporting role in the 2015 feature film “Trainwreck” and starring in “Space Jam: A New Legacy” in 2021. 

Here’s everything you need to know about James’ role in the upcoming “House Party” and what to expect from the film.

“House Party,” a Warner Bros. Pictures feature film, is set to hit theaters on Friday, Jan. 13.

Is LeBron James in the movie?

Based on the trailer, LeBron James will appear in the movie in hologram form at the very least.

It’s no spoiler, but James’ hologram is a plot point as he has a mirror that provides self-affirmations, including reminders that that “you handled the decision to go to Miami perfectly” and that “your hairline is perfect — anyone who says otherwise, is just jealous.”

Is ‘House Party’ a remake?

The 2023 “House Party” release is not a remake, but a reboot of the 1990 film of the same name.

While the 1990 release of “House Party” documents two high-school buddies (Kid N’ Play) that throw a house party at the home of one of their parents, the 2023 movie is about two young party promoters who double as cleaners of luxury homes. Their job affords them access to throw a lavish party at the home of LeBron James with aim of raising money to send one of their daughters to preschool.

In the spirit of reboots, one trailer for the movie features 2 Chainz’s modern spin on Mase’s “Feel So Good,” a track from 1997.
