“You could just hear people whispering Drew, Drew, Drew.” “I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s as good today as he was back then.” After a successful five years as a fan-favorite digital episodic series, originally conceived by Pepsi, ‘Uncle Drew’ follows Dax who after draining his life savings to enter a team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem is dealt a series of unfortunate setbacks, including losing his team to his longtime rival.
“Someone like you can combine the old school with the new school. I’ll give you anything you want.” “I’ll do it on one condition it’s got to be my team, my roster.” “Okay anything but that.” Desperate to win the tournament and the cash prize, Dax stumbles upon the man, the myth, the legend ‘Uncle Drew‘ (NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time. “You look like wolverines grandfather. That’s none of my business, that’s your look.”
“You don’t stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing.” Get Ready to get Buckets as the two men embark on a road trip to round-up Drew’s old basketball squad (Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie) and prove that a group of septuagenarians can still win the big one. Directed by Charles Stone III from a screenplay written by Jay Longino ‘Uncle Drew’ will hit theaters June 29, 2018.
