Celtics star point guard Kyrie Irving has an alter ego almost as good at basketball as him, and "Uncle Drew" is getting his own feature film.

According to IMBD, All-Stars Shaquille O'Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie will also appear in the movie as Drew's old basketball squad.
Uncle Drew first appeared as an elderly man on an outdoor court breaking ankles a little too easily for someone his age. Turns out, it was Irving in disguise, and the creation that began as a PepsiCo commercial was a huge hit.
The movie, which will be released in June, was directed by Charles Stone III, who also directed "Drumline" and "Mr. 3000."
Irving has helped lead the Celtics to a 40-18 record so far this season, his first in Boston after getting traded by Cavaliers this offseason.
