Casting

Over the years, various actors were attached to the project including Eva Longoria, Robert Downey Jr., Gerard Butler, Benicio Del Toro, and Jeremy Piven. However, the main roles were always intended for Jamie Foxx and his close friend and fellow comedian, Jay Pharoah.

In 2017, production finally began on the movie with an impressive cast that also included Jessica Szohr, DJ Khaled, and others.

Initially, All-Star Weekend was set to release in 2018 but this date was pushed back multiple times. It wasn’t until 2021 that we finally received an update on the film’s release.

In May of 2021, it was announced that All-Star Weekend would be released by Lionsgate through their Lionsgate Premiere label. However, there wasn’t an exact release date provided at the time.

Current Status

As of now (September 2021), no official release date has been announced for All-Star Weekend. The movie’s IMDb page still lists it as “post-production” but there haven’t been any updates on its status.

It’s unclear why the release date has been delayed so many times or if there are any issues with the movie that have prevented its release. However, some fans are still hopeful that they’ll be able to see the movie soon.
