Whoa! NBA All-Star LeBron James Wants to Do 'Space Jam' Sequel?

Space Jam / LeBron James

It's been 16 years since Michael Jordan teamed up with the Looney Tunes to take down a team of aliens who had stolen the talent from some of the NBA's most prominent players in the live-action animation hybrid Space Jam, but the official website is still up and running, and it seems there might be some desire from one influential fan to get a sequel off the ground. NBA All-Star basketball player LeBron James recently posted on Twitter (via The Film Stage) that he was a big fan of the original film and would love to do a sequel. So could the Miami Heat player be gearing up for what could be the best sequel of the decade?

Sadly, Warner Bros. isn't officially in development of a sequel, but with James' expressed interest out in the public eye, maybe we can get the studio on board. The first film is a childhood staple of mine so much that I even bought the flick on Blu-Ray. Though I'm not a big sports fan now, I was huge into basketball in grade school, collecting basketball cards, knowing entire team rosters (I still know dozens of mid-90s basketball players long since retired), so Space Jam was the perfect movie for me. Nowadays, a sequel would be pretty fun. A new generation of basketball stars could step up, and as long as Bill Murray comes back, I think we have the makings of another classic on our hands here. What do you think?

    I loved both Space Jam and Looney Tunes Back In Action, but I would kinda want to see another Space Jam happen, if anything Michael Jordan needs to come back for a role or cameo and Bill Murray too. But I kinda thought a sequel would have been more suited with Shaq in the lead role not Lebron....

    Don't forget Wayne Knight he needs to come back on this one too

    Amazing the lack of originality and need to replicate MJ career.... Damn this copycat......
  • MKultra
    Terrible idea!!!
  • BinaryChaos
    Soon after this he's going to want to take over from MJ with the Hanes commercials.
  • Only if every character involved needs to crack some variation of "Michael would have done it better", and it ending with someone praising LeBron with "good game, good effort"

    LeBron in a Space Jam movie? F**k that. This guy hasn't earned it. He'll never be loved like MJ and he needs to stop pretending he's the second coming of MJ. Face it Lebron, you could never beat Jordan in his Prime.

    Ugh. Just go. Away. And take this shitty idea with you.

    NEVER! Having an ego maniac like lebron ruin one of my favorite childhood movies would make me puke. This should not even be an idea.
  • Hbomb!

    what is wrong with you people? a fan just asked the dude if he liked space jam and he said yeah he wishes he could do a sequel. how does that translate to him being an egomaniac and/or a copycat? Relax Lebron haters, Relax
