Don Cheadle (Avengers: Endgame) knows it’s time to slam now, and there’s a real jam going down over at Warner Bros. in the form of Space Jam 2, a sequel to the awful-yet-somehow-beloved live-action/animation hybrid from the 1990s which featured basketball legend Michael Jordan teaming up with the Looney Tunes.

Space Jam 2 cameo

Come on and slam and welcome to the latest disappointing casting update for Space Jam 2. Despite an encouraging number of NBA and WNBA players recently joining the sequel to the beloved 1996 live-action/animation hybrid film, Space Jam 2 was faced with another casting disappointment after NBA superstar Stephen Curry turned down an offer to make a cameo.

Space Jam 2 Basketball Players

After years of rumors, Space Jam 2 seems like it’s actually happening. Now that the NBA is in the off-season, superstar Lebron James has plenty of time to lead the sequel to the live-action/animated hybrid sequel. And despite having some trouble recruiting certain NBA superstars a few months ago, it sounds like plenty of names have been lined up with key roles in the film.

While the first Space Jam featured Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, Mugsy Bogues and Shawn Bradley from the NBA, Space Jam 2 is bringing in names from both the NBA and WNBA, and the first list of players on the roster has reportedly been revealed. Find out who the Space Jam 2 basketball players will be below. Read More »

Space Jam 2

After years of development, it looked like Space Jam 2 was gaining steam once NBA superstar LeBron James officially signed on last year to star in and produce the sequel to the 1996 film. However, it seems like Space Jam 2 will be sidelined for a little longer as producer Ryan Coogler teams up with Searching co-writer Sev Ohanian to pen a Space Jam 2 rewrite while James negotiates a sneaker contract that may prevent NBA stars from showing up in the film entirely.

Space Jam 2

After years of fans demanding that a sequel to Space Jam be made with LeBron James (in a continued effort to compare him to Michael Jordan, the true greatest NBA player of all-time), Warner Bros. Pictures has finally set a summer 2021 release date for the live-action and animation hybrid.

But at the same time, the studio isn’t too confident that two of cinema’s most revered movie monsters going head-to-head in will be enough to contend with Vin Diesel and the crew of Fast and Furious 9. Godzilla vs Kong has been bumped up a couple months to avoid clashing with Universal’s hit international blockbuster franchise. Read More »

space jam sequel skate jam

Space Jam sequel is currently in the works with LeBron James in the lead, but at one point, we almost had a very different follow-up. According to skateboard legend Tony Hawk, Warner Bros. approached him in the early 2000s to star in a film called Skate Jam, which would presumably feature the Looney Tunes characters riding skateboards and saying things like “Sick shred, bro! Now hit the halfpipe!” Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately?), the box office failure of Looney Tunes: Back in Action kept Skate Jam from ever getting off the ground.
