LeBron James, who stars in Amy Schumer’s new movie Trainwreck, has just announced a partnership with Warner Brothers.
Now, as we all know, the infamous sports comedy Space Jam starred basketball legend, Michael Jordan, in 1996.
Well, last month, Warner Brothers filed to renew its trademarks for the classic film. While news of a Space Jam 2 surfaced in February when Deadline announced that producer, Charlie Ebersol, would be directing a sequel film with LeBron James, James’ reps immediately denied the rumor.
But now that a partnership has been announced…
Warner Brothers released news that it was starting a creative partnership with the Cleveland Cavaliers player, on Wednesday. They stated that the partnership would be “spanning all areas of content creation.” The statement does not make clear any specific plans, but states that James’ “creative footprint’ would “touch all areas” of the studio.
So, technically, there is no official sign or word that James will star in a Space Jam sequel, or if the sequel will even happen, but let’s keep our hopes up!
Despite the denial of a sequel and no clear plans for the partnership, James has hinted at the possibility.
“I’ve always loved Space Jam,” the 30-year-old player told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “It was one of my favorite movies growing up. If I have the opportunity, it will be great.”
Well, LeBron James is definitely in! Hopefully Warner Bros. is as well!
