Teaser Trailer for the Peacock Coming of Age LeBron James Biopic SHOOTING STARS — GeekTyrant

Apr 6, 2023

A teaser trailer has been released for the Peacock film Shooting Stars, which is a coming of age biopic feature about the life of NBA great LeBron James. The film is directed by Emmy nominee Chris Robinson (Grown-ish) from a screenplay written by Frank E. Flowers (Metro Manila), Tony Rettenmaier (Space Jam: A New Legacy), and Juel Taylor (Creed II). The film features five-star high school small forward Marquis “Mookie” Cook in his acting debut as a young LeBron James.The film also stars Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger Things) as Lil Dru; Avery S. Wills, Jr. (Swagger) as Willie McGee; Khalil Everage (Cobra Kai) as Sian Cotton; Wood Harris (Creed films) as Dru Joyce; Dermot Mulroney (August: Osage County); and newcomer Sterling “Scoot” Henderson as Romeo Travis.The synopsis reads:“Shooting Stars is set in the 1990s, where a young LeBron James and his three best friends — Lil Dru, Willie McGee and Sian Cotton —declare themselves the ‘Fab Four,’ after the famed Michigan Wolverines’ ‘Fab Five’ of that era. From the moment we meet them, we realize this group of friends, under the guidance of coach Dru Joyce, is connected by more than basketball. So, when the coach at the top basketball school in their district threatens to separate them by putting Lil Dru on junior varsity, the Fab Four decide to switch schools to be able to play varsity together, joining the team at a predominantly white Catholic school instead. The community takes this as an insult, but the boys’ dedication to each other is more important than anything else. With their new coach, a disgraced former college coach seeking redemption of his own, the boys, along with former rival and new teammate Romeo Travis, will face battles not only on the court but in real life, in their quest to become national champs, and will rediscover that what matters most about the game is the people playing beside you.”This looks like it’s going to be a really great sports movie. The cast and story are solid, and it looks like it has a lot of heart. The film will be available for streaming on Peacock on June 2nd. Check out the trailer below:
