LeBron James plus Ryan Coogler plus Space Jam?

What once existed as just a rumor finally seems to be becoming a reality – and it may be bigger and better than anyone expected. According to The Hollywood Reporter, James has tapped Coogler as the producer for James’ long-awaited Space Jam 2. Whoop, there it is, we are officially headed back to Looney Toons World.

“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” James told the Reporter. “It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”

Coogler, who most recently shattered box office records with his recent direction of Marvel’s Black Panther, is also responsible for films such as Fruitvale Station. Those worried about the possibility of messing with the greatness of the original Space Jam, Coogler’s 2015 spinoff of the Rocky franchise Creed, starring Michael B. Jordan, was also a box office success.

Leave it to James to try to topple a juggernaut like the Michael Jordan-led Space Jam of 1996 – to this day it remains the highest-grossing basketball movie of all time. The film has generated approximately $250 million.

It was also reported that Terence Nance, creator of the HBO late-night sketch comedy television series Random Acts of Flyness, will direct Space Jam 2. Production is scheduled to begin in 2019 during the NBA offseason.

Very little is known about any potential casting for the film, including which NBA stars will make cameos. All I know is I need Boban Marjanovic to replace the Shawn Bradley cameo and Isaiah Thomas to replace Muggsy Bogues. Lance Stephenson’s gotta be a Monstar.
