It’s a glorious day for 80s babies.
Rumors of a Space Jam have sequel have swirled for years. However, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed our greatest joys Monday (May 2) when they announced Space Jam 2 starring LeBron James is actually indeed happening.
Justin Lin, (The Fast & Furious 6 and Star Trek Beyond) along with Andrew Dodge and Alfredo Botello are co-writing the Warner Bros. reboot. Lin is also looking to direct the film via his Perfect Storm Entertainment.
James who provided uncanny comedic relief in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, helped add more fuel to the rumors in July when his company SpringHill entertainment signed a deal with Warner Bros.
The original 1996 film starring Michael Jordan was a box office success earning $230 million worldwide. Yet despite the exciting news, many on Twitter weren’t too thrilled about the sequel.
Don’t know how to feel about Space Jam 2…usually sequels 20 years after the original masterpiece don’t go well…
