Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil Will Produce 'White Men Can't Jump' Remake


I feel like it's safe to say that audiences aren't exactly clamoring for a White Men Can't Jump remake, but the project has promising potential.

In addition to "Black-ish", Barris' company is developing a remake of "Shaft" for New Line. Honestly, it all hinges on who they cast in the lead roles.
