After more than 20 years, we will finally get to see Space Jam 2. The follow-up to the live-action/animation comedy will star LeBron James with Justin Lin scouted as a potential director. Like the original film, Space Jam 2 will feature an NBA star who crosses paths with Warner Bros.’ iconic Looney Toons characters.
Its rather fitting to see the production securing the services of an NBA star such as LeBron and there’s no doubt the Cleveland Cavaliers guard will bring the same gravitas as Michael Jordan did in the 1996 original film. It’s widely expected that Space Jam 2 will also boast a number of NBA cameos in the production.
No details have been revealed regarding the plot of the film but Warner Bros. is reportedly looking at Lin to helm the film. The director has been busy as of late putting the finishing touches on Star Trek Beyond, which will be due out this summer.
No release date has been given as yet with regards to the release of Space Jam 2.
