Over 20 years after the original movie was released, Space Jam is getting a sequel!
In 1996, Space Jam came out in cinemas and took over $ 230 million at the box office worldwide. More than 20 years later, the sequel will be directed by Terence Nance and will be produced by Ryan Coogler.
In the first installment, Bugs Bunny and his friends had to face aliens who had stolen the talent of the greatest players in the NBA in a basketball game. As a result, the Looney Tunes had recruited the star of the time, Michael Jordan. Now, LeBron James has been chosen for the sequel.
The NBA star confirms
On Twitter, the star's production company released a photo of a locker room with several lockers with the names of LeBron James, Bugs Bunny and Ryan Coogler.
At the Hollywood Reporter, the 'King' of the NBA said: 'This collaboration for Space Jam is much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together to make a movie,' confirming his presence in the cast. A first for the sportsman, who will take his first steps into acting with a leading role in a big Hollywood production.
