LeBron James in Space Jam 2 greenlit

Reports Deadline:

Broadcasting veteran Dick Ebersol‘s sons have come on board to develop the sequel to 1996 animated/live-action hit Space Jam as a starring vehicle for James.

I love Space Jam. I also love Michael Jordan. LeBron? Well, I’m not the biggest fan of his. Never really resonated with his personality. He’s hands down the choice here, and I can see Space Jam 2 being successful nearly 20 years after the original. It’ll be fun, and there should be a fun cast of all-stars and probably Kevin Hart joining him. Now let’s see if it takes the next step into production.

ICYMI, Space Jam recreated on 2K14. Another reason why it needs to come back!
