Space Jam 2 has been in our hearts and on our minds since the ’90s, and despite rumors of a sequel circulating for years, the film may finally be concretely moving forward.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Justin Lin, director of Fast & Furious 6 and Star Trek Beyond, is set to direct Space Jam 2. Lin will be co-writing the script with Andrew Dodge (Bad Words) and Alfredo Botello (Hollywood Adventures).
The report also says LeBron James, who recently held a role in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, is set to play the starring role. This wouldn’t be a huge shock to those who remember his partnership with Warner Bros., which was announced last year and sparked a whole new Space Jame sequel hype train alone.
