In a recent interview with BET, movie superstar and former stand-up comedian Jamie Foxx divulged that he’s anticipating directing a new comedy movie with Kevin Hart and Ken Jeong (Knocked Up, The Hangover).
Said Jamie, “I got a film I want to direct, it’s called All Star Weekend. It’s about two guys, one guy loves Kobe Bryant, the other guy loves LeBron James. When you talk about LeBron and Kobe, it’s like talking about Republican and Democrat. It is all the way out there funny. I’ve talked to Kevin Hart, and I’ve talked to Ken Jeong from The Hangover. I would probably make a cameo in it. Hopefully we’ll get that going really soon.”
One movie Foxx’s fans are interested to know more about is Skank Robbers. Foxx provided an update about that as well, saying the hold up is Martin Lawrence, who apparently hasn’t signed on yet.
“You know what, I still want to do the movie! Because the script that we have is so clever and so smart. But it comes down to Martin [Lawrence]. I think it would be a blast to do those characters again one more time. I’ve been asking Martin, you know, ‘Where you been, where you been at?’”
Fans can take solace knowing that Jamie is pestering Marting to get on board.
“I took a picture of my younger daughter, she’s three-and-a-half, watching the Martin Lawrence Show and I sent it to Martin. I said ‘Look at this man, I miss you bro. We need to get back to this, man.’ But schedules have to work out, and, most importantly, Martin has to want to do it, man. But I just think, for our fans, they would go absolutely nuts.”
