LeBron James to Star in Space Jam 2

Quote:
Three days after Michael Jordan’s birthday, Warner Bros. announced that they’re moving forward with a sequel to his 1996 film Space Jam with Miami Heat star LeBron James set to head up the film.

This is one of those projects that people have been talking about half-jokingly for years (as the fan art above proves), so it’s interesting to see it come to fruition just as James–who broke his nose in a game this week–could use a change of headlines.

Deadline reports that the sons of broadcasting legend Dick Ebersol are involved as writer/producers:

“Charlie Ebersol, who already has a good relationship with the NFL through his NFL Characters Unite series on USA Network, is about ready to do the same with the NBA,” the report says. “He has been brought on to the produce the picture through his production company, The Company, from a script by his brother Willie Ebersol. The latter won an Emmy for the London Olympics. This is his first screenplay.”

The original Space Jam made more than $200 million globally as well as driving significant licensing and merchandising revenue for Warner Bros.



In My Opinion, this movie needed to happen 15 years ago and I think too much time has passed.

Though I'll give it a shot and I'm not saying it's going to bomb right now as that would be premature given we don't even have a trailer yet or a plot description

EDIT

Apparently This is not happening so it's a false alarm. I'm sad yet glad at the same time

The original is one of the worst thing to ever happen to the Looney Tunes, and this looks to be no better.

Does the new generation of children even know the Looney Tunes? I know they were always on TV when I was a child along with The Flintstones, Smurfs, etc., which is why my parents took my sister and me to see Space Jam, but I didn't know those shows were on channels anymore (besides early hours children shouldn't be awake...).

But now that I think about it, the Smurfs and Chipmunks CG monstrosities were hits. :/

That's a huge relief (though no big surprise). The only way I want to see the Looney Tunes are with the original classic shorts. None of this new Looney Tunes Show garbage. I'll admit I saw and liked the first Space Jam as a kid, but it's not really something I want to revisit as an adult. I rented the second movie and it just bored me to death.

I remember reading another joke article where they announced were going to make a sequel to Shaq Fu (a REALLY bad video game from the 90s).

Eh, Cartoon Network does show the original shorts now, but early on in the day when most kids are at school. But they are right before Tom & Jerry, which are still pretty popular.

And there was The Looney Tunes Show, which was a hit for a little while.

OMG, seriously?! This makes me so happy and yet so afraid....sequels normally tend to be....yeah. after the disaster that was Looney Tunes: Back in Action (and I'm not even going to ACKNOWLEDGE the utter s@%& that was The Looney Tunes Show), I can only cross my fingers and hope this film is done well.

Glad to hear it's not happening. It would have been garbage, as I can see them somehow incorporating LeBron's "decision" in the film.

It has been some time since I've seen "Space Jam", but I remember liking it at the time. And even recall some moments where they made fun of Disney.

The Looney Toons Show is recent enough, regardless of quality.

Cartoon Network gained exclusive airing rights to the Looney Tunes in 2000. Then they removed them their lineup in 2004, after "Back in Action" bombed, which was actually a self-inflicted consequence from corporate feuding. The Looney Tunes Show is part of an effort to re-introduce these characters to a generation that may not know who Bugs Bunny is, despite continued DVD releases.

I am absolutely glad to know that Space Jam 2 is fake. If WB is serious about doing another Looney Tunes movie, they need to let Bugs Bunny and friends carry their own film. They've been around far longer than Michael Jordan or any other lame celeb they're paired with (and as you can tell, Jordan has become a faded icon from the 90s), so you'd think WB would have more faith in their iconic characters.

Former SNL performer Jenny Slate is actually currently writing a new Looney Tunes movie for Warner Brothers. I read an interview she did where she talked about watching so many of the original cartoons to get the right sense of humour for the project, so it definitely seems like they've hired somebody who cares about the characters.

If in the subtle humor of Jones and the delightful insanity of Clampett, I would pay my left hand to see this. :D

Cartoon Network put the original Looney Tunes back to it's lineup two years ago.

Eh, we're getting another show instead.

Quote:

Wabbit - A Looney Tunes Production: The hilarious, heroic and mischievous Bugs Bunny you love is back! From Warner Bros. Animation, Bugs stars in an all-new series consisting of comedic shorts that find the iconic carrot-loving rabbit matching wits against (and getting the best of) classic characters like Yosemite Sam and Wile E. Coyote. Along the way, Bugs will encounter brand-new foes?and he?ll have some help from new friends like Bigfoot and Squeaks the squirrel.


Already I can tell that this won't be as much of an abomination as another Space Jam would be. Or like the first one was. :P
