After years of speculation, LeBron James is officially set to star in Space Jam 2 for Warner Bros. Since coming into the NBA, Bron has been compared to Michael Jordan which made it natural for the sports world to want/expect him to accomplish everything MJ did throughout his career.
Talk of a Space Jam sequel potentially starring James has been going on for almost a decade as many folks felt that LeBron was the perfect fit for the movie. Last summer when James and his company Spring Hill Entertainment signed with Warner Bros, you knew something big would be coming.
There is no release date for the movie yet. Check out more details via Variety:
Justin Lin is in talks to direct “Space Jam 2,” starring LeBron James, for Warner Bros.
The original starred Michael Jordan, who teamed up with the Looney Tunes cast to battle a group of aliens in an epic basketball game.
Lin and Andrew Dodge are penning the script for the film.
James made his acting debut in the Judd Apatow comedy “Trainwreck,” where he played himself. He received strong reviews, especially for his comedic timing opposite seasoned vets like Amy Schumer and Bill Hader. He is repped by WME.
Lin, best known for reviving the “Fast and Furious” franchise, is currently in post production on “Star Trek Beyond,” which bows later this summer. He also recently helmed an episode in the newest season of HBO’s “True Detective.” He is repped by CAA, Kinetic Management and Sloss Eckhouse.
