LeBron: The Movie, Part II

Following in the footsteps of Shaq and Michael Jordan, LeBron has signed on to a comedy-movie vehicle. It's being scripted by Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, who penned A League of Their Own and City Slickers. The plot will follow five regular joes who travel to Vegas to attend the LeBron James Fantasy Basketball Camp.

Ain't It Cool News a rundown of the details here , including the tidbit that James will executive produce along with his business partner Maverick Carter.

LeBron Book Signings in Westlake, Akron

After appearances from The Daily Show to NPR’s Fresh Air, LeBron James is capping his media tour in support of the King James Bio, Shooting Stars, with local book signings. He’ll appear at the Westlake Borders (30121 Detroit Road) Friday, September 18. Saturday the 19th, he’ll return to his hometown bookseller, the Montrose/Fairlawn Barnes & Noble (4015 Medina Road).

Expect a mob scene. The stores do, so they’re already establishing riot-control protocols.

The Friday Borders signing starts at 7 p.m., but they’ll begin handing out wristbands, starting at 9 a.m., to customers who buy the book. The store will give out a maximum of 600, which doesn’t guarantee a signature. And the King is only signing the book, no more than two copies, and no memorabilia.

The Saturday Barnes & Noble signing has a similar drill. The event starts at 2 p.m., but the store begins handing out wristbands at 7 a.m. If you’re not in line yet, get there soon.

And, yes, he did book-signings in New York first. — D.X. Ferris
