According to reports, Universal is adapting the LeBron James autobiography Shooting Stars for theaters with Chris Robinson to direct. Robinson, who is best known for directing Star, also has a history of making music videos.

A script was already written for the film by Joel Taylor and Tony Rettenmaier, based on a early draft written by Frank E. Flowers.

James and Maverick Carter are producing the movie for their SpringHill Entertainment along with Terence Winter and Rachel Winter, who will produce the project for Tangerine Pictures and Cold Front Productions.

Co-written by Buzz Bissinger, the book centers around the Shooting Stars, a group of kids from Akron, Ohio including LeBron James. Together they form a basketball squad they called the Shooting Stars when they were just ten and eleven years old. This team quickly created a bond and stuck together through several years of basketball, ultimately earning the national championship during the senior year of high school.

LeBron James is continuing to dominate in Hollywood. The upcoming Space Jam 2 movie is preparing to release and he serves as the executive producer on the Netflix series On Her Own Ground, starring Octavia Spencer.
