Update: Despite studio sources confirming to Deadline. LeBron James’ sources refute the claims to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
LeBron James has won two NBA championships, four NBA MVP awards and two Olympic gold medals. So whatâ€™s next for King James?
Warner Brothers plans to develop â€œSpace Jam 2,â€ the sequel to the film that starred a great NBA legendâ€”Michael Jordan.
In the 1996 film, Jordan helped the Looney Toons defeat an alien race in a basketball game for their freedom. The film grossed over $230 million worldwide that year.
According to Deadline, Charlie and Willie Ebersol will develop the live action/animated sequel under their production company, The Company. The script is written by Willie Ebersol.
Do expect a slew of Warner Brothers characters and well-known NBA players in the next film. No release date has been set at this time.
King James is following Jordanâ€™s legacy closely on court and on screen in the future. As a reminder, Jordan still has six NBA championship rings. Oh, yeah. I went there.
