LeBron James Starring In Space Jam 2

It’s official! After years of rumors pointing at the Cavs baller as the heir to Jordan’s Space Jam role, LeBron James has finally been confirmed as the star of the new Space Jam movie. Via TMZ:

The rumors have been swirling for years, but now it’s apparently happening … “Space Jam 2” is in the works — starring LeBron James.

Producers of the long-awaited sequel to the 1996 partially-animated classic are already in talks with Justin Lin — of “Fast and Furious 6” fame to direct … according to Variety.

The original “Space Jam” — starring Michael Jordan — shot to #1 when it opened back in the day and went on to become the highest grossing basketball movie ever (at that time) making $230 MILLION worldwide.

No word on when the flick is expected to hit theaters.

Nice! Will you be hitting theaters to watch LeBron walk in MJ’s footsteps alongside the Looney Tunes??
