Space Jam 2 is [possibly] happening [without LeBron]


[ESPN’s Brian Windhorst has made a whole lot of very happy people very sad. Via Twitter, he says that Lebron’s sources have completely refuted this and stated that he is not involved in any Space Jam sequel. But while Windhorst’s language seemed pretty definitive, nobody from Warner Bros. has actually refuted anything. So… who knows.]

Remember waaaaaaaay back in 2012 when our very own Nick Valdez reported on LeBron James wanting to star in a sequel to the greatest film of all time?

Well, do I have good news for you.

Deadline has the exclusive scoop on a Space Jam 2, starring one LeBron James. We don’t know much about the plot, or which WB characters will appear, or how this affects the critically acclaimed Barkley series of video games. Hell, we don’t even have a director.

What the studio has confirmed is a writer and producer. Sibling team Willie (writer) and Charlie Ebersol (producer) have been tapped to develop the project.

This is quite exciting, but I am still very concerned about the status of the Space Jam theme, as performed by perennial bards, the Quad City DJs. I assume all that and more will be addressed as the project moves forward.

I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait to hear about this from literally everyone I know over the next couple days!
