Reports about Space Jam 2 featuring LeBron James have been floating around the internet for a while now, and it seems like it’s actually going to happen in the near future. A familiar name was eyed for the director’s chair. The script is written by Justin Lin (Star Trek Beyond, Fast & Furious 6) with Andrew Dodge and Alfredo Botello. Justin Lin is also said to produce and direct the project.
The hint comes from the fact that LeBron James and his SpringHill Entertainment inked a deal with Warner Bros in July last year, covering a wide range of content creation possibilities. Space Jam is a mixture of live-action and animation which starred Michael Jordan, Bill Murray, Wayne Knight and more together with Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck the rest of Looney Tunes characters.
