'Shooting Stars' Tells the Origin Story of LeBron James and His Home School Crew

The King will finally get to tell the story of how he met his brothers.

“People think they know my story,” LeBron James said at the start of the teaser trailer for Shooting Stars, the upcoming movie about the NBA superstar’s childhood. “But this is our story. This is how I met my brothers and how we became family.”

The film will tell the story of a close-knit group of friends growing up and dealing with the inner city of Akron, finding refuge on the basketball court.

What’s ironic about this movie is that Marquis “Mookie” Cook, a real-life high school basketball phenom, will make his acting debut and play the young LeBron James.

Cook also played with Bronny James, LeBron’s oldest son, in the coveted McDonald’s All-American Game, which is a showcase of the nation’s best high school basketball talent.

Alongside Cook in the film is Stranger Things star Caleb McLaughlin as Lil Dru Joyce III, as well as Scott Henderson as Romeo Travis, Avery S. Wills, Jr. as Willie McGee and Kahailil Everage as Sian Cotton. Dermot Mulroney of Scream VI will play St. Vincent Saint Mary head coach Keith Dambrot.

Additionally, the movie was shot entirely in Northeast Ohio during the spring of 2022.

Chris Robinson of ATL and Black-ish directed the movie, while James and his business partner, Maverick Carter, were the producers of the project.

Shooting Stars exclusively premieres on Peacock June 2.
