LeBron James signs deal with Warner Bros., fueling speculation of Space Jam sequel

on July 22, 2015, 3:17pm

NBA superstar LeBron James recently made his acting debut in Judd Apatow and Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck. The performances earned mostly rave reviews, compelling Warner Bros. to sign James to a deal covering future TV and film projects, according to Variety.

While Warner Bros. offered no details of future projects, one very popular rumor is a sequel to Space Jam, a property which the studio owns. The original film, released in 1996, starred Michael Jordan and the cartoon cast of Looney Tunes. James’ name has long been attached to a sequel and, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, several production companies previously approached him about starring in the project.
