Last week came word of a deal between LeBron James and Warner Bros., fueling speculation that a sequel to Space Jam is in the cards. (Warner Bros. owns the rights to the franchise and previously expressed a desire for a new film starring James. What’s more, the studio recently filed a new trademark for the “Space Jam” title.)
In a Q&A with fans on Twitter today, the NBA superstar did little to quell the speculation. Asked if he was “doing Space Jam 2,” James responded, “Maybe … Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. #LooneyToonsRock”
The original Space Jam, released in 1996, starred Michael Jordan and the cartoon cast of Looney Tunes. James made his acting debut earlier this month in the Judd Apatow comedy Trainwreck.
