The long-awaited sequel to the classic basketball film, Space Jam is finally coming. LeBron James‘ film and digital company Spring Hill Entertainment announced the film via Instagram earlier today with a locker room photo of the team names working on the project.
From left to right, Bugs Bunny is the first shown with the position of point guard. Also, within his locker the message “daffy was here,” basically confirming the lovable duck as well. LeBron James is shown next playing small forward obviously. Next to him is director Terence Nance and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, who will produce the film.
Rumors of a LBJ Space Jam sequel has been circling for a while now, and according to the Hollywood Reporter, work on the film is expected to begin in 2019. We’re hoping Bill Murray makes a return. Fingers crossed!
