Space Jam 2 Movie Returns with LeBron James
Space Jam 2 is happening. SpringHill Entertainment has just posted new details about the highly-anticipated follow-up to the hit 1996 movie starring NBA legend Michael Jordan.
Now, over 20 years later, Space Jam 2 will star basketball icon LeBron James as “small forward,” with Bugs Bunny co-starring as “point guard.”
The SpringHill Entertainment Instagram post, which shows a locker room, also reveals that Terence Nance will direct the movie and Black Panther’s Ryan Coogler will be a producer on the film.
James also confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.
Production on the movie is “tentatively slated” to start in 2019 during the NBA off-season. And, if the numbers in the Instagram post are any indication, the movie’s release date might just be Jan. 23, 2021.
