Mark your calendars because Space Jam 2, starring LeBron James, will hit theaters on July 16, 2021. The ensemble is pretty much exactly the same as Michael Jordan's outfit from the original movie. The sequel isn't set to release until July 16, 2021.
The movie will be directed by Terence Nance, who most recently created and directed HBO's "Random Acts of Flyness", and produced by Ryan Coogler, whose projects include "Black Panther", "Creed" and "Fruitvale Station". And in two years, LeBron James will find himself in a similar situation next to Bugs.
Space Jam 2 comes in as the much-anticipated sequel of 1996 classic Space Jam. Following the release date announcement of the film, Iron Galaxy's Dave Lang chimed in on Twitter and basically demanded that he be the one to work on the game if it were to happen. Actually, it would be wonderful if Coogler was able to bring Michael B. Jordan into Space Jam 2 for some kind of cameo. Now, the horror film will compete with Limited Partners (Paramount), Yesterday (Universal Studios), Fox's untitled James Mangold Drama and Entertainment Studios' 47 Meters Down: Uncaged in the final week of June this year.
Bryce Harper Phillies Talks Are 'Intensifying'
While no deal is imminent, Heyman reports that Harper has multiple long-term offers for more than $30 million a year. Phillies are the favorite, but word remains that nothing's done yet.
You likely already knew that a "Space Jam" sequel was on the way, and if you didn't.well, now you know. The first film really hinged on the audience's awareness of Michael Jordan's career, as it revolved around the Looney Tunes characters luring Jordan away from his ill-fated baseball career and back to basketball.
Believe it or not, they're making a Space Jam 2.
