‘Space Jam’ sequel starring LeBron James is reportedly happening
The rumors are apparently true: “Space Jam 2” is reportedly happening, and LeBron James will be starring.
According to Rebecca Ford of the Hollywood Reporter, Justin Lin, who has directed four “Fast & Furious” movies, is in talks to direct the Warner Bros. film, which will star James. The script will be written by Andrew Dodge.
It is reportedly very early in the process, so there is no timetable for a release and no information on any further details.
The rumors have been flying for almost a year now, when James partnered up with Warner Bros. at the same time the company filed new trademarks for “Space Jam.” As of March, it was claimed that James hadn’t even discussed “Space Jam 2” with Warner in any detail, but that appears to have changed.
