LeBron James has gone Hollywood in more ways than one. Not only is he playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, but he’s also set to star in a Hollywood feature film.
As most of you know, James is teaming up with Ryan Coogler for Space Jam 2. Production on the film is scheduled to begin in Summer 2019, and now we know it’ll be filmed in California.
“The upcoming sequel is one of 15 film projects that have been selected for the state’s Film & TV Tax Credit Program 2.0. Space Jam 2 received the largest conditional allocation with a $21.8 million tax credit. ‘Mouse Guard’ scored the second-biggest cut ($10.2 million) of the new $73.3 million available in tax credits.”
Damn. That’s a big a** tax credit. I understand why they didn’t film on Mars now. /dad joke.
Anyway, we’re really looking forward to this sequel. James is a legit funny dude, so he should knock this role out of the park. No word on who will be joining him in the movie, but we will keep you posted as more information is released.
For now, enjoy LeBron James schoolin’ people on the basketball court…
