It's been in the works for YEARS now, but that Space Jam sequel that 90's kids have been waiting for is finally officially go!
If you grew up in the 90's, there's no doubt you remember the original movie starring Michael Jordan playing basketball alongside a bunch of Looney Tunes characters. Well, the rumors that a sequel is being made starring Lebron James are no longer just rumors!
The Hollywood Reporter just announced, with Lebron in LA, the sequel is happening with James as well some other heavy hitters behind the scenes. It will be produced by Black Panther director Ryan Coogler and directed by Terence Nance, creator of HBO's "Random Acts of Flyness."
“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” James says, “It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people [with Black Panther].”
Production on the movie is scheduled for 2019 during the NBA offseason.
Let's hope the movie is enjoyable for both new audiences, and for those that grew up loving the original.
