LeBron James has not discussed ‘Space Jam 2’ in detail with Warner Bros
When LeBron James and his production company signed a deal with Warner Bros. last year, the early buzz was that a sequel to “Space Jam” would soon be developed. There has been little momentum on that front to this point.
Maverick Carter, LeBron’s friend and business partner, recently told Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com that James’ production company SpringHill Entertainment has not discussed “Space Jam 2” in detail with Warner. President of SpringHill Jamal Henderson said much of the same, noting that the door is still open.
“It’d be crazy not to say that it’s something on the radar, it’s super on the radar, but it’s not something we have any news on,” Henderson said. “There’s no sort of start on it.”
While SpringHill and Warner’s deal states that the two companies are to co-produce and co-own every project, LeBron’s company has the ability to shop projects elsewhere if Warner is not interested. The partnership came about in July, and SpringHill and Warner have yet to do their first project together. None of the projects SpringHill is currently working on involve LeBron as an actor.
Warner Bros. filed new trademarks for “Space Jam” last June, so the potential is certainly there. But for now, LeBron will stick to entertaining people on the court and making them think with tweets like this. There will be plenty of time to play basketball with cartoon characters down the road.
