House Party Reboot On HBO Max Removed From Schedule

House Party Reboot On HBO Max Removed From Schedule

The upcoming reboot of the classic 90s film House Party has been removed from the official HBO Max schedule after potential production changes.

The HBO Max reboot of House Party has been removed from the official schedule for this month. Directed by Grammy Award-winner Calmatic, the planned feature was announced back in 2018 with LeBron James and Maverick Carter attached to produce alongside SpringHill Entertainment and New Line Cinema. Based on the acclaimed 1990 comedy film by the same name which focused on a wild night of partying for two high schoolers, the remake was instead touted to follow two house cleaners whose decision to throw a party at the home of LeBron James results in chaos after losing his championship rings.

Now, Warner Bros. has delivered a potential blow to fans after canceling House Party’s July release date. Originally due to debut on July 28, the reboot has now found itself completely unscheduled by HBO Max, with no explanation for the decision provided. An alternative release date has also not been confirmed.

While no official explanation was provided, the decision to pull the reboot follows comments made by star Jacob Latimore (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) back in June, which indicated that the film would not be released until 2023 due to “executive changes” at Warner Bros. Joined by Doctor Who’s Tosin Cole, Latimore also suggested that the remake could enjoy small cameos from original 90s stars Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin. Described as a modern-day reimagining of the cult classic, expectations surrounding the House Party reboot will remain understandably high as fans await further news, though Latimore appeared optimistic that a delayed release date would only improve the film.
