It was also fortunate enough to arrive at a time when the pop-culture of the early 1990s meshed with the film’s overall style and tone; not to mention at a point in the careers of Harrelson and Snipes when both actors' popularity was on the rise. A remake of "White Men Can't Jump," the classic basketball movie from the 1990s, is in the works with Clippers forward Blake Griffin and Panthers center Ryan Kalil as co-producers. (Griffin knows a thing or two about dunking, having won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest in 2011.). Barris also will act as a producer. Remaking classic TV shows and movies is a risky proposition.

I would be supportive of an original story of some sort being developed by Barris, Griffin, and Kalil if they are looking to get their foot in the door of the movie business, but WMCJ just doesn’t feel that old (even though its been almost 25 yrs since it premiered). While the title for the original is actually a line in the film, delivered by Wesley Snipes' Sidney Deane to Woody Harrelson's Billy Hoyle, about his inability to dunk, it's quite ironic that Blake Griffin is producing, since he is a white man that can jump, winning the NBA Slam Dunk contest in 2011. The title comes into play when Snipes’ character makes fun of Harrelson for his inability to make dunk shots. ‘White Men Can't Jump’ Remake Happening with ‘Black-Ish’ Creator.
