LeBron James Talks ‘Space Jam 2’ on ‘Today’ Show: ‘Hopefully We Can Do Some Great Things’ (Video)

Speculation around the sequel erupted when the NBA star and his production company signed a deal with Warner Bros.

After LeBron James‘ success in Amy Schumer‘s “Trainwreck,” the NBA star definitely wants to be a part of “Space Jam 2.”

In an interview with “Today,” James said that he’s hoping for a sequel of the original 1996 “Space Jam,” which starred Michael Jordan and “Looney Tunes” favorites Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Tweety Bird.

“We hope so,” said James when asked about his thoughts for the sequel. “We’re definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and Tasmanian Devil and every last one of them, so hopefully we can do some great things.”

In July, James and his business partner Maverick Carter signed a production deal with Warner Bros. to develop movies, TV shows and digital content for the studio under their SpringHill Entertainment banner. At the same time, the studio has also been developing “Space Jam 2” with him in mind, so rumors started circulating that James might be a part of the sequel.

Moreover, when asked whether he wants to shift more towards producing, James said, “It’s a passion of mine. Everything I do, I have a passion about it. If we could continue it, I know I don’t have to dribble a basketball and fly through the air to do those type of things.”
