The biggest sports star in the world playing basketball with the most famous cartoon characters of all time? That sounds like a recipe for a blockbuster - and that’s just what Space Jam was. After years of rumors, Space Jam 2 LeBron James confirms start of production.
LeBron’s Space Jam sequel will be produced by Ryan Coogler (of Black Panther fame) and directed Terence Nance, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The announcement of Space Jam 2 is the latest and greatest endeavor in James’ burgeoning Hollywood empire.
LeBron posted on his Twitter account that production on Space Jam 2has begun. He didn't divulge any details on the plot or characters, but fans will be happy to know that the film is closer to becoming reality.
It's tough to say how well Space Jam 2 will do. The first one did well commercially, and is well liked by many viewers. If the second one retains the original's spirit, while also improving upon its criticisms, the film could do exceptionally well in both box office and reviews.
