It was just a few days ago that Lil Rel spoke with media about his role in Uncle Drew. “To do this movie was kind of insane, cause Chris Webber is my favorite power forward of all time, so to actually work with him was a dream come true,” he said. “Reggie Miller, Shaq. I mean when you get a chance to see how big Shaq is in person, it blows your mind. Like who guarded this dude?”
Shaq definitely enjoyed life as a star athlete during his earlier years. Now, the former NBA player wants to focus on the big screen. “I want to be as big as Rock,” O’Neal said during a recent interview with The Vindicator. “We come from the same place: athletes that transition,” Shaq explained.
“That’s my goal. I want similar type movies. I want to get thrillers. I want to get dramas. I want to do comedies. I want to be the next Rock. I want to do a thriller where I’m like a hero and beat up all the bad guys.”
You can catch Shaq, Lil Rel Howery, Kyrie Irving, Chris Webber and others in Uncle Drew when the film comes to theaters on June 29, 2018. Catch the movie’s trailer below!
