20th Century Studios unveiled Friday a new teaser for its remake of “White Men Can’t Jump”, starring Sinqua Walls and Jack Harlow.

The footage highlights exactly what Jeremy (Harlow) and Kamal (Walls) are capable of, shooting nothing-but-net shots and dunking on the opposition figuratively and literally. They are unafraid to jab at their victims or even each other. 

However, the streetballers joined forces to win an upcoming competition that will net them a cool $500,000. They are willing to hustle all the way to the top if it means setting themselves and the people around them up for life.

Released in 1992, the original “White Men Can’t Jump” starred Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson as a pair of street basketball hustlers who team up for a big match-up.

The sports comedy was written and directed by Ron Shelton. It was a box office success upon release and has garnered a reputation as one of the more beloved studio films of the ’90s.

Charles Kidd II, known professionally as Calmatic, directs the remake from a script by “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris and Doug Hall. Described as a “modern remix” of the original, Harlow’s Jeremy is a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his career,” while Walls’ Kamal is a promising player who derailed his own future in the sport.

“White Men Can’t Jump” marks Harlow’s transition from hitmaker to actor, as the rapper makes his feature film debut. Walls is best known for his turns in last year’s Sundance horror breakout “Nanny” and the comedy series “American Soul.”

The movie also stars Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Vince Staples, Myles Bullock, and Lance Reddick.

Barris is producing the movie through his company Khalabo Ink Society alongside Paul Hall. Current Boston Celtics player Blake Griffin serves as an executive producer, alongside Ryan Kalil and Noah Weinstein for their label Mortal Media. Calmatic, Doug Hall, and E. Brian Dobbins also executive produce.

“White Men Can’t Jump” is set to debut on Hulu on May 19.
