After years of rumors and discussion, Space Jam 2 is officially a go with LeBron James starring, Terence Nance directing, and Black Panther‘s Ryan Coogler producing. It has all the makings of a potential All-Star team — and yet they still have to fill out the roster.
I’m not sure how excited I am to watch “Space Jam 2”. I think LeBron James is a slightly better actor than Michael Jordan, and the original “Space Jam” was nothing to shake a stick at. I’m the perfect age for Space Jam to have meant something to me, but having watched the film as an adult I can tell you it’s largely underwhelming. Still, Space Jam 2 is set to film this summer and we finally have a confirmation of that fact from LeBron himself. Speaking at All-Star Weekend, James told a crowd in Charlotte that they are indeed going to film once the season is over.
2 Chainz has announced the release date for his long-teased album RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE: It’s out March 1 (via Def Jam). Along with the release date, 2 Chainz has revealed that LeBron James A&R’d the project.
Showtime on Friday announced a premiere date for “The Resurgence: DeMarcus Cousins,” a documentary that chronicles the NBA star’s grueling comeback from a career-threatening injury. The film will debut on the premium cable network at 8 p.m., April 13.
