‘Space Jam’ sequel in the works, maybe

space jam

A sequel to Space Jam is in the works, eighteen years after it first hit cinemas. Someone call R. Kelly! (On second thought, don’t.)

According to Deadline, broadcaster Dick Ebersol’s sons – riddled with nostalgia – are developing the sequel, and reportedly wrangled NBA star LeBron James to take the place of the central human basketballer amidst all those animated Looney Tunes.

Not so fast, though.

Despite the original report suggesting Warner Bros had confirmed the film was being developed as a starring vehicle for James, his reps have denied any involvement.

This doesn’t mean Space Jam 2 isn’t in development. Just not with James.

Question is: who else could possibly fill the shoes of Michael Jordan?

And the other question is this: a Space Jam sequel? For real?

The original grossed a monumental $230 million back in the 1990s. Actually, this makes a lot of sense.
