The much talked about sequel of the cult classic film "Space Jam," is happening. However, you're going to have to wait awhile for it to hit theaters.
According to Aaron Couch of The Hollywood Reporter, "Space Jam 2" starring Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James will be released on July 16, 2021. Filming will begin this summer once the NBA season reaches its conclusion.
The sequel will be produced by filmmaker Ryan Coogler, who worked on such box office hits like "Black Panther" and "Creed." Terence Nance, the creator of HBO's "Random Acts of Flynes", will handle directing duties for the film.
For fans of the 1996 flick starring Michael Jordan, it's certainly a long wait. Despite that, there will no doubt be a large turnout at theaters around the nation.
With James already confirmed as the leading role, it leaves many wondering which NBA teammates will join him? Definitely expect LeBron's best friend Dwyane Wade to make an appearance. Maybe we'll catch Anthony Davis in the film, whom James was trying to bring to Los Angeles for the better part of the past two months.

If we were to have one request, please cast Boban Marjanovic as one of the Monstars. It's the perfect fit.
