LeBron James Documentary in 2009

Posted: November 25th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
LeBron James Documentary in 2009Submit Comment
"More Than a Game," a documentary about NBA star LeBron James' high school days in Akron, Ohio, has been sold to Lionsgate in an unusual deal. The studio is planning a fall 2009 release.

After a well-received world premiere in Toronto, where James received a five-minute standing ovation and presided over a spirited latenight party and a street dunk contest, the pic had been chased by several buyers.

Commitments from Nike, Coca-Cola, State Farm and the NBA could reach well into eight figures. Nike, for example, launches a major shoe campaign for James every September. In 2009, the campaign is likely to pivot on the film.

"Game" is being positioned not merely as a record of James' achievements but as a feel-good story of overcoming adversity.

It follows the five starters on the varsity team at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, who travel a winding road from a rundown gymnasium to national glory and NBA riches, seeking to remain a tight-knit quintet even as James becomes a megamillionaire.

The film mixes newly unearthed archival footage and family memorabilia with fresh interviews.

Yeah, make a movie about a guy who hasn't done a thing except get swept in the playoffs (sorry but lol) and who last season BARELY beat out a Wizards team with Arenas on the bench during the entire series. All hype, no substance.

ill agree i dont think he deserves a movie..yet..but he is the most hyped up bball player and he is wut 23? and if this deal goes down hell finally have players that arent scrubs to work with and start his championship runs..and arenas is garbage trying to compare himself to kobe are you serious kobe is the best in the game

Yeah Arenas is no Kobe (no one is, and that's coming from a Laker hating Spurs fan) but still, outside of Arenas, who do the Wizards have? No reason that series should have gone 7 games, especially if "King" James is such a basketball god; basically bunch of scrubs took him to the brink of elimination. And back to the movie issue, hell, even Jordan had to retire before a doc*mentary. Lebron is no where near the player or competitor that Jordan was despite his and the NBA's marketing attempts to force the public's perception of him as such. This is just another advertisement for his clothing and shoe line.

boston are the champs and they went 7 games with both the hawks and cleveland... The Wizards beat alot of teams without Arenas so what does all that matter he was gone alot of the season last year.... so you make no sense so you are typical haha...

ok first off the wizards are just a bad team and second this movie isnt about lebron in the nba its about his high school days (which was basically like last year) which he won 3 state championships and was mr. ohio basketball for 3 years as well and for the numbers he put up during that time and the contoversy from when his mom bought him the hummer..this should be one good movie

jetdog, it makes perfect sense: here I'll make it easy for you: Lebron is marketed as a singular force of basketball dominance which, as evidenced by his playoff performances, he clearly is not. You think Kobe would have let his team go 7 against the Wizards with or without Arenas??? And yes, it's not about Lebron in the NBA, it's about LEBRON. DOn;t think for a second that a guy who made 100s of million before being signed to an NBA team, who hands with Rupert Murdoch doesn;t calculate every potential money making angle down to the wire. Lebron is a brand name - a corporation, first- a basketball player second.

you can try to sit there and act like you know what's going on... good try... PLAN AND SIMPLY PUT LB is the hottest player in the NBA and he lead his team to the finials with a team that out did theirselves.. kobe, wade, shack, even jordan needed more players and more of a whole team to make it there.. this movie would not be made if he didn't lead his team to the championship so fast...
