“This is definitely not a reboot. It’s an entirely new look for a classic movie,” James shared with The Hollywood Reporter when House Party was first announced. “Everyone I grew up with loved House Party. To partner with this creative team to bring a new House Party to a new generation is unbelievable.”
The film was written by Jamal Olori and Atlanta writer Stephen Glover and is directed by Calmatic.
“I want the audience to be open-minded when it comes to these classic titles, and I want them to look at this film as this is the new generation,” Calmatic shared with Entertainment Weekly. “This is how we get down, this is what we do, and it’s okay to love it. It’s okay to revamp and expose the next generation to the same vibe that they participated in.”
