LeBron James, Ryan Coogler to team up for 'Space Jam' sequel

Ryan Coogler Le Bron James

Some of those were in works prior to James' decision in free agency, but matters have seemingly been sent into overdrive since Hollywood became his new backdrop. The film will be produced by Ryan Coogler, who directed "Black Panther", "Creed" and "Fruitvale Station".

Black Panther director Ryan Coogler and Random Acts of Flyness creator Terence Nance will be joining National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James to bring beloved "90s kids movie Space Jam and the Tune Squad back to the big screen, with James" SpringHill Entertainment.

James told THR that he signed on, in part, because of Coogler's vision on Black Panther, noting there was no such thing as a black superhero. "So for Ryan to be able to bring that to kids, it's wonderful", James said. I'd just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don't just give up on their dreams.

Further details of the movie have not been released by James' company or Warner Bros.

Kylie Jenner did the most RIDICULOUS thing for the first time yesterday
Kylie Jenner is on track to becoming a billionaire and is the youngest person in the world to hold this position. Her tweets created a buzz on Twitter with other celebrities joining the conversation.

While the premise of the latest installment of "Space Jam" being discussed is not rooted in the original story, there have been discussions of involving Jordan, with his level of involvement still to be determined. At this point, Jordan's level of involvement is to be determined.

James appearing in Space Jam and essentially replacing Jordan is another weird subtext to the never-ending debate about whether James is the greatest basketball player ever or if Jordan still retains that role.

James, who had a supporting acting role in the 2015 comedy "Trainwreck", has reviewed numerous scripts and met with various producers and directors in search of the right project, according to Windhorst. Filming will likely take place during the National Basketball Association offseason.
