In January 2017, Kenya Barris was reported to be developing a White Men Can't Jump remake produced by NBA star Blake Griffin and NFL player Ryan Kalil.[1] Nothing more was mentioned about the project until November 2021, when Calmatic was revealed to be the director.[2] In March 2022, rapper Jack Harlow was cast in the film, in the role originally played by Woody Harrelson.[3] In April 2022, Sinqua Walls was cast as Kamal Allen, the equivalent of Wesley Snipes' character in the original 1992 film.[4] Other characters include Jermaine, who often antagonizes Kamal; Bobby, Kamal's boss; and an opposing fan who trash-talks Kamal.[5] Barris will produce the film under his Khalabo Ink Society banner, and Kalil, Griffin, and Noah Weinstein will produce under their Mortal Media banner.[4] On May 5, 2022, Lance Reddick, Teyana Taylor, and Laura Harrier were cast in the film.[6] Additional castings included Tamera "Tee" Kissen, Myles Bullock, Vince Staples, and Zak Steiner.[7]

Filming began on May 11, 2022, in Los Angeles, with Tommy Maddox-Upshaw as the cinematographer.[8] It wrapped up by July 2022.[7] The film will feature a soundtrack by DJ Drama.[9] By January 11, 2023, the film was in post-production.[10]
