Ballers will star Hart as a man trying to emerge from the shadow of his successful basketball player brother at a weekend fantasy camp, reports Deadline.
A director will be hired once the first draft of the script is complete, with an eye to begin shooting the movie next summer. Brian Grazer will be a producer on the project.
James is currently producing a new comedy series for Starz.
Hart has been featured in two high-profile films this year, the apocalyptic comedy This Is The End and the stand-up movie Let Me Explain. »
