dear god no

if Space Jam 2 does come out in 2016, it'll be the 20th anniversary of the first movie starring Micheal Jordan

Kind of awkward for the THIRD one in this triumvirate of bball stars...

I wish they'd make a sequel to Loony Toons: Back In Action instead. :(

He has listened to the OP's plea:


Update 9:29 p.m. ET: Aw, that's took bad. ESPN reports that sources close to LeBron refute the report from Dateline:

Well it was fun while it lasted. LeBron sources refute Deadline report, there's no Space Jam 2 or Warner Bros. project in works

I'd rather see Kevin Durant in it anyway.

I'd actually be OK with this. But then I never cared for the idea twenty years ago. I don't think I've ever seen the original.

Even if this was real I don't think it would work. The reason the original Space Jam is sort of a fun film is because Michael Jordan seems like a pretty likable guy in real life, Lebron James doesn't seem that way to me as much.

Plus Jordan was liked by pretty much everyone. I wasn't a bball fan ever, even now. But I liked Jordan cuz he was cool and was pretty damn good at his thing. Has SJ aged well and how is the BD? Loved SJ as a kid.

I'd say if you grew up with it you'd probably still like it. It's a pretty fun movie but nothing outstanding obviously. I always liked Jordan and the Looney Tunes though.

Apparently you never saw Durant in 'Thunder Struck'. Basketball is his thing. Not acting. Not by a long shot (pun intended).

Jesus. Still?! It even links to the current WB shop. How? Has that link for the store been the same damn thing since? Man...

New Looney Tunes/Space Jam? Yes.

Lebron James? No.

What would even be weirder is if the store link has changed, but somebody is keeping the "Space Jam" site up to date. :eek:

Didn't realize how many people hated LeBron James. :lol:

I mean Geez, would you all rather have Kevin Durant or Carmelo?

I realize a lot of the posters in Movie Talk probably aren't NBA fans, but LeBron is 2-time NBA champion and probably the biggest star of the NBA right now.

I admit to not following the NBA at all but does LeBron have widespread popular appeal like Jordan did? Especially for what would be a family film? Let alone the little problem if he can at least fake an acting ability.

In a two year span James won an Olympic gold medal, two league MVP awards, two Championship MVP awards, two Championships, Sportsmen of the Year and AP Male Athlete of the Year.

I think more what TimeSkip is going for is do enough people like him to want to see him in a film.

A better metric might be jersey sales as compared to others.
