Space Jam 2 Starring LeBron James is Officially Happening
22 years after the success of the hit movie Space Jam, in which LeBron James goes against a bunch of animated Monstars along with his team of Looney Tunes characters, Space Jam 2 has been green-lit and will soon go into production.
The movie will go into production in 2019 during the NBA off-season with four time NBA Most Valuable Player, two time Olympic gold medal winner and three time All-Star Game MVP, LeBron James making a return. It will have a whole new cast and crew with Ryan Coogler of Black Panther at the helm, and Terence Nance as director.
When asked about the film, LeBron James said, “The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie, it’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”
