They should have cast Kahwi. He would make a great alien.

Don Cheadle Joins LeBron James in 'Space Jam 2'
JULY 11, 2019 2:15PM by Aaron Couch

The 'Avengers' actor is suiting up for the Warner Bros. sequel.

The actor is joining Warner Bros.' and LeBron James' Space Jam 2, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Cheadle recently appeared in Avengers: Endgame as the James Rhodes, also known as the hero War Machine.

Space Jam 2, from director Terence Nance, is a sequel to the 1996 hit that starred Michael Jordan and featured cameos from a number of NBA all-stars, in addition to classic Looney Tunes characters such as Bugs Bunny. Black Panther filmmaker Ryan Coogler is producing the new film, and he penned the latest draft of the script with Searching's Sev Ohanian.

Cheadle was nominated for an Oscar for 2004's Hotel Rwanda and has earned Golden Globes for Showtime's House of Lies and the 1998 HBO film The Rat Pack. He currently stars in the 1980s-set Showtime comedy Black Monday.

Space Jam 2 opens July 16, 2021. Cheadle is repped by UTA.

LeBron James' 'Space Jam 2' Replaces Director
JULY 16, 2019 8:45AM by Etan Vlessing

'Girls Trip' director Malcolm D. Lee will take over for Terence Nance on the Warner Bros. sequel.

Girls Trip and Night School director Malcolm D. Lee is set to direct Warner Bros.' and LeBron James' Space Jam 2, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Lee replaces Terence Nance on the sequel to the 1996 hit that starred Michael Jordan and featured cameos from a number of NBA all-stars, in addition to classic Looney Tunes characters such as Bugs Bunny.

Lee has made the majority of his films with Universal TV's sister movie studio; all of those have recouped their production budget, often by wide margins. Night School has made about $85.5 million worldwide thus far against a reported $29 million budget, while Girls Trip earned more than seven times its $19 million budget at the box office.

Black Panther filmmaker Ryan Coogler is producing Space Jam 2, and he penned the latest draft of the script with Searching's Sev Ohanian.

Don Cheadle, who recently appeared in Avengers: Endgame as James Rhodes, has already been cast for the film. Space Jam 2 opens July 16, 2021.

Lee is repped by Paradigm and Del Shaw.

I hope they are shooting now because LeBron will be busy next spring and into June.

I read they are shooting it right now. But it's not like LeBron and company have to do much work. They just drive to WB and sit in front of a green screen at a sound stage for a few hours a day.
