The four-time NBA champion keeps flexing his Hollywood muscle. SpringHill, which James cofounded with longtime business partner Maverick Carter, operates divisions for film, TV, digital media (Uninterrupted), consumer products and marketing. SpringHill coproduced 2021’s “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” which starred James and grossed $163 million globally. SpringHill is also producing “House Party” for New Line, Netflix’s Adam Sandler-led “Hustle” and live-action movie “Fantasy Football” for Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Films. In addition, SpringHill has a scripted entertainment deal with ABC Studios and a first-look film deal with Universal. James is still eyeing bigger things, with SpringHill in talks with potential investors like RedBird Capital to sell a stake in the company that would value it upwards of $750 million.
