Everybody get up: It could time for more "Space Jam." However, there would be a new face helping out the Looney Tunes, Cleveland Cavalier star Lebron James. The rumor of a possible "Space Jam 2" picked up steam on Friday.
In an interview with Today's Willie Geist, James said he hopes to get "Space Jam 2" made. "We're definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and Tasmanian Devil and every last one of them, so hopefully we can do some great things," James dished when asked if the movie could become a reality.
E! Network reported in July that James signed a TV-film-digital production deal with Warner Bros., while the studio also filed for new trademarks for the movie. According to Variety, Spring Hill co-founder Maverick Carter and Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara are excited to have James on board as a partner.
“The combination of LeBron’s global media presence and Warner Bros.’ unmatched production and distribution expertise is a big win for fans everywhere,” Tsujihara said.
In addition to all of the Looney Tune characters and Michael Jordan, the original 1996 film also stared NBA superstars Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Larry Johnson, Shawn Bradley and Muggsy Bogues. Bill Murray and Wayne Knight were also in the movie, as well as Danny DeVito who voiced Swackhammer.
While James is hopeful "Space Jam 2" gets made, it's unclear what kind of plot the movie might have. Could we see both James and Jordan together in the sequel -- or maybe even squaring off? We'll see what Warner Bros. has up its sleeves.
