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.

Foot Locker Space Jam Commercial

As children of the 1990s get more and more nostalgic for the decade that is now over a decade old itself, we’re bound to see movies studios and TV networks going back to the well for more film and TV revivals. One such project is Space Jam 2, the sequel to the Warner Bros. Pictures live-action animated hybrid that had NBA superstar Michael Jordan team up with the Looney Tunes for an intergalactic basketball game.

Space Jam 2 has been rumored for years, but the rumors became more solid when director Justin Lin became attached to the project with NBA player and Trainwreck star LeBron James on board to lead the movie. Many are skeptical this will ever happen, so in the meantime, Foot Locker created a commercial that acts as a sort of mini-Space Jam 2, but with NBA player Blake Griffin stepping up to play the Monstars this time.

Space Jam Sequel with Tiger Woods

This week marks the 20th anniversary of Space Jam, a movie that brings about all sorts of nostalgic memories for children of the 90s. As someone who enjoyed the film growing up, I can’t say that it has aged well, and despite the superstar status of Michael Jordan, he wasn’t exactly the most charismatic actor to put up alongside Bugs Bunny and some of the most iconic cartoons of all time.

But still, Space Jam has plenty of fans, and with the anniversary hitting this week, several outlets spoke to director Joe Pytka this week, and he revealed that director Spike Lee was almost part of the development of the original movie during the screenwriting phase. In addition, he mentioned one abandoned plan for a sequel involving another iconic athlete: Tiger Woods. And for everyone who is either excited or upset about the developing Space Jam 2, the director has some thoughts about that as well. Read More »
