Everybody get up, it’s time to slam now…except for director Terence Nance, who apparently is no longer attached to Space Jam 2, the long-awaited sequel to the ‘90s family comedy, which saw the Looney Tunes playing basketball for their lives in animated/live-action mashup in the vein of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. This is a movie that’s been in the works for practically ever, and has recently hit the news thanks to its casting developments.
Now, it feels like there’s been a changing of the guard at the top. According to Deadline, director Terence Nance has departed from the project. The outlet states that it all chalks up to creative differences with the studio, and that he had a very different vision for the film from the studio and producer, which is a no-no.

Taking over for him is Malcolm D. Lee, who is known for his work on Girls Trip and Night School, both of which starred the great Tiffany Haddish. With both of those movies performing incredibly well, it’s no wonder the studio opted to go with Lee for this sequel sports film.
Space Jam 2 is still set to hit theaters on July 16, 2021.
