Lebron James, one of the greatest basketball players of all time, announced on his twitter account that him and his crew are starting to film Space Jam 2.
Man this really just hit me! I’m really shooting Space Jam 2!! This is so surreal and doesn’t even make sense to me! Where I come from man and what I saw growing up this doesn’t add up to me! ??♂️! I’m truly grateful and beyond blessed. This is CRAZINESS. ? ? ? ???— LeBron James (@KingJames) June 25, 2019
If you are not familiar with this film – Space Jam 1 is a basketball film from 1996 starring no other than Michael Jordan. In the movie, Jordan helps Bugs Bunny and his Loony-Toons friends to win a basketball match against aliens.
In the original movie, Jordan recruited some big names like Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Bird, Larry Johnson and more.
According to sources in Space Jam 2, Lebron managed to recruit big names such as –
Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, Chris Paul and Damian Lillard. The movie will be directed by Ryan Coogler, the “Black Panther” director.
Not everyone is happy with that. Basketball legend and analyst Charles Barkley, who was a part in the original movie said in an interview – “Not at all. Well, listen, I don’t care. Space Jam 1 was amazing. We don’t need 2. Space Jam 1 was a classic. I don’t like when people try to imitate something that was already good.”
Space Jam 2 is expected to hit the theaters in 2021.
