If you haven’t heard, Space Jam 2 is currently in production. LeBron James could be out there right now filming a scene for the movie.
We still don’t which NBA stars will have cameos in the film, but we do know Don Cheadle has joined the cast. We do not know what his character will be, but it’s possible he could be a coach? Who knows.
Terence Nance is directing this follow-up to the 1996 Space Jam film, which starred Michael Jordan. The first Space Jam movie made a respectable $230 million worldwide.
Not much is known about this sequel, but we do know the planned release date is July 16, 2021. It’s strange that they’re filming now, but it won’t be released until 2021. I suppose it’s because they have a lot of animation work to do in addition to the live-action shoots.
We’ll keep you posted as more information is released. In the meantime, you can catch Cheadle on the Showtime series, Black Monday, which just got renewed for a second season.
