Blake Griffin Marvin Martian

Last year brought rumblings of LeBron James being sought for Space Jam 2, but they turned out to just be rumors. This year, however, speculation has grown about the basketball star stepping into the world of Looney Tunes after signing a new deal with Warner Bros. for future film and television projects.

But even though new trademarks for Space Jam were filed last month, there’s no guarantee it will happen at all. In the meantime though, basketball star Blake Griffin had some fun with the Looney Tunes, specifically Marvin the Martian, in a new commercial that has the two facing off on a slam dunk contest. It’s as close as we can get to a Space Jam 2 right now. Watch the Blake Griffin Marvin the Martian match-up after the jump! Read More »

‘Space Jam 2′ in Development [Updated]

Space Jam website

When Michael Jordan was at the top of his game in the NBA, no one was bigger. He was everywhere: TV, commercials and even the movies. In 1996, Jordan starred in Space Jam, a blockbuster family comedy where he was recruited by the Looney Tunes to help them beat a bunch of bad guys in a basketball game. It blended live action, animation and featured cameos from dozens of prominent NBA players as well as stars like Bill Murray and Wayne Knight.

These days, the closest thing we have to Michael Jordan is the two-time reigning NBA Champion Lebron James. He’s just started to dip his toes into films and now he’s lining up his own battle with the Looney Tunes. This isn’t a joke, the sons of legendary sportscaster Dick Ebersol have just come onboard to develop a sequel to Space Jam as a starring vehicle for James. Willie Ebersol will write the screenplay and his brother, Charlie Ebersol, will produce.

Update: After Deadline published its story, Brian Windhorst at ESPN reported that reps for James denied that any project is in development. A film could still be in development at Warner Bros., but not with James. James also commented.
