OMG, Lebron James to star in Space Jam 2?
It’s been nearly 2 decades since cartoons and all star athletes joined forces to create one of the most beloved films of the 90s, Space Jam. After the film quickly became a household name, the public demanded a sequel. With news of Lebron James signing a deal with Warner Bros., it seems that this request may finally be fulfilled.
James’ production company, SpringHill Entertainment, announced a formal agreement with Warner Bros. on Wednesday, with the hopes of creating new TV and film programs. Although no official plans of a Space Jam sequel have been reported, fans have reason to be hopeful. Especially after news surfaced that Warner Bros. filed new trademarks for Space Jam back in May. The world has spoken, and they want cartoon-basketball action.
Following in Michael Jordan’s massive footsteps is no small feat. But James already proved himself a comedian alongside Amy Schumer in Trainwreck, so his transition from court to cinema looks pretty promising. Let’s hope it continues to blossom and he doesn’t end up another basketball-star-turned-actor disaster.
Do we need a Space Jam 2? Yes. Young people are no longer interested in sex and weed, climate change continues to threaten our very existence and Minions are telling us to fuck ourselves. 90s nostalgia has become one of the last things we can turn to for support. With revivals of the last great decade inordinately abundant, why not add Space Jam 2 to the mix? It may be 19 years late to the party, but it’s more than welcome. Everybody get up it’s time to slam now!
