Space Jam 2 will reportedly be directed by Terence Nance. Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) will produce the upcoming film.
Speaking previously about the news to The Hollywood Reporter, James said:
“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie. It’s so much bigger.
“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. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people [with Black Panther].”
