'Space Jam 2': Reports say sequel is coming with LeBron James as star

See also

Miami Heat star LeBron James once joked about wanting to star in "Space Jam 2" if it were to ever become a reality. Well, it appears that dreams do come true. Deadline reported on Feb. 21, 2014, that a sequel to the 1996 film starring Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes is coming, and it's going to be exactly as LeBron James wanted it to be.

The sons of broadcasting giant Dick Ebersol are on board to develop "Space Jam 2," and it appears to have gotten the green light to go ahead.

In the original "Space Jam," Michael Jordan got sucked into Looney Tune land so he could help them play a basketball game against some aliens named the Monstars. It ended up having a worldwide gross of $230 million in theaters, and has become a cult classic.

A popular kids' TV series even came from it so it was a rather successful brand.

There were a large number of other current (at the time) NBA stars such as Larry Johnson, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Muggsy Bogues, Larry Bird, Shawn Bradley, and more. It's quite possible that LeBron James could star alongside other NBA stars in "Space Jam 2" as well.

It's going to be interesting to see exactly how the reigning MVP will do in a feature starring role, but at least it's happening in a good way with Bugs Bunny and company.
