LeBron James has some new teammates in LA: the Toon Squad.
After years of rumors, James and his SpringHill Entertainment production company are moving forward with a Space Jam sequel. Black Panther director Ryan Coogler has been tapped to produce the film alongside Terance Nance as director.
James spoke exclusively with The Hollywood Reporter about this opportunity.
“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” says James, “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.”
