The long-rumored Space Jam sequel finally has been greenlit.
Lebron James will star and produce the film with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler. Warner Bros has the film slated for a 2019 release.
“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” says James, “It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”
No word yet on other NBA stars joining the cast.
