Space Jam 2 finally happening with LeBron James and Justin Lin

Fans of the original SPACE JAM have been calling for a sequel to happen for a number of years. Rumors have often placed LeBron James as the most likely NBA superstar to command another squad in a game of intergalactic hoops, but to this point, nothing had come about from all that wishing and speculating. That is... until today.

Justin Lin is in talks to helm SPACE JAM 2 that would star LeBron James and a Who's Who of Looney Tunes in a follow-up to the nostalgic hit of 1996. Andrew Dodge and Alfredo Botello are set to pen the screenplay with the process described as being in the very early stages currently. However, you can bet there are eyes on the NBA calender, in order to carve out the best window possible for James to shoot that's far away from the basketball season or Cavs training camp. 

The first film had Michael Jordan at the center of its story, arguably the greatest NBA player of all-time and certainly of that moment, so it makes sense for SPACE JAM 2 to feature James, who is currently the best in the league right now (no disrespect to Steph Curry). Does that mean we could perhaps see both basketball icons share the court for whatever story is unearthed this time? Hmmm... We shall see.

Only interested if they bring back the Monstars, Bill Murray and Wayne Knight. The old Space Jam website is still functional in all it's 90s glory: [link]

Somebody should dig up that ancient Space Jam official website and update it to this news. I think it's still functional.

Fuck Justin Lin, unless it's a music video then Lin should not be directing it.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

My honest opinion is... It'd be cool to see for shits and giggles but I definitely wouldn't pay for it and I wouldn't recommend anyone to. Just a fun watch for online streaming, Netflix, or basic cable one day. Definitely not something you want to shelve out about 20 bucks for.

I thought Lebron was good in Trainwreck, harmless/fun movie, no reason it shouldnt get a sequel. Bill Murray cameo?

Ugh. I really don't need this guy stroking his own ego (again) on the big screen. Can't stand this media whore.

I don't keep up with football so I don't talk about specific players or act like I know. I do keep up with film and basketball tho, and absolutely no one but ppl from Cleveland (maaaaybe) would say James is currently better than Curry. I'm not sure he's even a lock for 2nd place mvp. Curry is now the best player in bball, killing records. He's so good at the game he's bad for the game
