‘Space Jam 2’ May Be In Development, But Lebron James Is Not Involved (Yet)


Space Jam 2 may be real, but not everything story related to Bugs Bunny’s latest adventure is based in truth.

When Deadline broke the news that Space Jam 2 was indeed a real project this weekend, their initial scoop mentioned that NBA star Lebron James had signed on to fill the role originally portrayed by sports icon Michael Jordan. Brian Windhorst at ESPN is now reporting that reps for James have denied that any project is in development. They say the film itself may be happening, but at this point Lebron James has not signed on to star in any feature related to the Space Jam franchise.

The original Space Jam hit theaters in 1996 and eventually earned over $200 million at the box office. The soundtrack kicked ass, as did the animation, and from what I remember it was the greatest human-meets-cartoon encounter ever brought to the silver screen. Whether or not that same magic could be created again is anyone’s guess, but I am certainly interested in seeing it attempted once more. Do you agree? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
