The player will replace Michael Jordan in the sequel to this iconic ’90s movie, and we’ve already begun to learn some details. The 90s would not have been the same without ‘ Space Jam ‘.
The iconic movie starring Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes is almost 25 years old now, but film history has taught us that it’s never too late for a sequel. Now, replacing the protagonist was not an easy task.
Chosen to put yourself in such great shoes (literally and metaphorically) is LeBron James, the revered Los Angeles Lakers player who seems to want to make his way in the movies after the occasional role (‘ And suddenly you ‘) as a secondary. ‘ Space Jam 2 ‘ could confirm him as a star not only on the court but also in Hollywood.
At the moment, the player seems excited about the project. On his Instagram profile he has revealed for the first time the new official logo of the film, which varies a bit from the original from 1996 and advances the arrival of a new story on its own terms:
Space Jam was always scheduled to come out in June 2021, so we’re pretty good. And much of this is now animation, so being indoors is really cool for us. So we are still on Like everything in the world, everything slows down a bit, but we are still on target.
I am looking forward to it. During this time right now, I wish I could launch it right now, man, and give people a few things to see in their homes. But we come next year, next summer. We are excited about that.
While we still don’t know whether or not ‘Space Jam’ will feature original cast member Bill Murray, we do know that James won’t be the only NBA player invited to the party.
As we knew last summer, figures like Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike will appear in various roles in the film, which will be directed by Terence Nance (‘An Oversimplification of Her Beauty’) and who, in principle, it has scheduled its release date for July 16, 2021.
