There had been rumors going on around the VOF water cooler for a couple of years about a Kyrie Irving UNCLE DREW film coming to theaters. And so the rumors were true.
The movie news is being reported through many media outlets. ESPN even took to Twitter to share that Irving will be joined on the large screen by Lil Rel Howery, Nick Kroll and Erica Ash in the UNCLE DREW film. In addition to NBA legends Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber and Reggie Miller appearing in the film. Oh no, it doesn’t stop there. Other great cast members include: form NBA Slam Dunk Contest winner Nate Robinson, and former WNBA star Lisa Leslie.
Spring boarding off the popular web series, the story will follow Uncle Drew as he goes on the hunt to find his former teammates for one final tournament at Rucker Park in New York City.
