LeBron James May Star in New Comedy Project for Paramount Players

LeBron James May Star in New Comedy Project for Paramount Players

As it turns out, some fans still had an issue with it and once the mural was vandalized again, Never made a decision to just wipe the slate clean.

With another project coming up Monday in the San Fernando Valley, Never - who has done more than 100 murals around Los Angeles, including a popular "Karate Kid" one - did not think he had time to restore the James mural after the latest act of vandalism. That's because the muralist who created it, Jonas Never, has chose to repaint the wall white after the artwork was defaced for the second time in five days.

But even if the caption was left with a reference to James's nickname, 'King James, ' the graffiti returned this week, prompting Never to paint over the entire mural entirely. But someone didn't take kindly to its "the King of LA" message, and the painting was vandalized less than two days after it was completed.

The artist specialises in "topical" murals including recent works following the untimely deaths of chef Anthony Bourdain and musician Chester Bennington, which still remain intact.

"I got a ton of support", Never said, according to ESPN. "At first when we had the original piece, there was a ton of positivity, but also a ton of like pro-Kobe, anti-LeBron sentiment".

Variety is reporting that LeBron James is in talks to star in an untitled comedy movie that was recently sold to Paramount Players.

"I know when to cut my losses", Never said.

With that being the case, he thought it best just to whitewash the entire wall. "In 2018, it was just about doing what he wants to do".

One person even offered fans $300 to alter the mural. '[Kyle] Kuzma, LeBron, Lance Stephenson blowing on LeBron'.
