A bidding war has broken out in Hollywood for the rights to an upcoming movie based on LeBron James high school year, with four different studios interested in the project, according to Deadline.com.

The movie would be produced by James and his business partner Maverick Carter, along with Terence and Rachel Winter, who were recently nominated for Academy Awards for Wolf of Wall Street and Dallas Buyers Club, respectively.
