It was rumored for a long time that a Space Jam 2 film would be made and it would include Lebron James as the star this time around. We can officially say that rumor was true because we got a teaser picture from SpringHill Entertainment a company founded by Lebron and Macrick Carter announcing that a film is being made with Lebron in it and already has its Director and Producer.

If you take a look at the picture above you can see that Ryan Coogler will be producing the film with Terrence Nance as the director. You might recognize the name Ryan Coogler because he just came off directing a highly successful film he did for Marvel called Black Panther. Ever since Lebron James made his move in free agency to Los Angeles Lakers he has been announcing TV projects left and right, This is just another project this man has been working on. Lebron James told Hollywood Reporter, “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.”
