We learned last month that one key piece of casting had fallen into place for the White Men Can't Jump reboot, with rapper Jack Harlow scoring the new take on Woody Harrelson's role. Now we know that Sinqua Walls will be playing the updated version of Wesley Snipes' character.

Ron Shelton's iconic 1992 sports comedy followed Billy Hoyle (Harrelson), a man under pressure to earn some cash from wife Gloria (Rosie Perez) and the mobsters he’s indebted to. After pulling one over on fellow basketball hustler Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes), the two join forces to con players across the courts of Los Angeles.
