A sequel to “Space Jam” with LEBRON?!!

Daffy: How’s this for a new team name: The Ducks!
Bugs: Please! What kind of Mickey Mouse orginization would name their team The Ducks?

Space Jam (WB 1996)

 

The Facts

WHAAAAT? No one called this, but its being reported on The Film Stage (that story here) that Miami Heat Allstar Lebron James has stated, in a tweet, that were he to make a foray into major motion pictures, the first thing he would want to do is make a sequel to the 1996 Warner Bros hit “Space Jam”, that had starred legendary Basketball player Michael Jordan. Now, nothing has been put in motion, and while a sequel to Space Jam has been rumored for sometime, there has been anything put in motion. So right now this may just be a pipe dream for Miami’s MVP, but stranger things have happened.

 

My Take

Well, well, I remember enjoying Space jam when I was a child, so Im not sure how much I can say I’m excited about this. It is absolutly a concept aimed at children and while sequels to established properties seem like somewhat of a Cop -out these days, this one has been out public eye for some time, and just might work in WB’s favor. BUT LEBRON?! Maybe its because I’m an Angelino, but I can’t stand that guy. At least Michael Jordan was a man everyone could respect, he is legendary and iconic, Lebron is just a punk with an annoying beard. Not too mention I was under the impression that the Basketball players turned actors trend ended when the credits rolled on Shaq’s “Kazaam”. Maybe I’m wrong but being able to lay up or hit a 3 pointer doesnt really put you in the postion to become a Hollywood player.

 

until next time
