Asked about the media buzz that a re-make is in the works, Harrelson told reporters in New York recently: "I think it's great they are doing a re-make. I hope it's great. ... I think it's really cool."
Teased by a journalist, who said, "Who could step into those shoes?" Harrelson replied: "Those shoes, no. Those were Michael Jordan Nikes back then."
"I wish him luck," Harrelson said of black-ish creator Kenya Barris, who is penning the screenplay for a re-do about a former college basketball star hustling the street players who underestimate his ability because he is white. "I find it kind of great that they want to do a re-make. ... I'm gonna go see it."
Harrelson can now be seen in the big-screen dramedy Wilson.
