Public Enemy: Pitch by LeBron James and Channing Tatum

New Line has acquired the pitch Public Enemy, with LeBron James and Channing Tatum’s production companies, SpringHill Entertainment and Free Association

Lucas Carter will pen the script, a subversive action-comedy that looks at the speed of media in our current landscape.

James and his SpringHill Entertainment partner, Maverick Carter, will produce. Spencer Beighley and Jamal Henderson will oversee for SpringHill. Michael Parets and Andrew Schneider will oversee for Free Association.

SpringHill has been active recently in setting up strong slate, and New Line has been particularly interested in its material, as the two are currently working on a “House Party” reboot. SpringHill also recently sold a pitch to Legendary called “Hustle.”

It is also exec producing the Netflix limited series On Her Own Ground, starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer.
