More than two decades after the film's release, Hollywood has announced its official "Space Jam 2" team.
Basketball icon LeBron James's production company SpringHill Entertainment Wednesday announced new details about the upcoming sequel to the 1996 movie "Space Jam" that featured NBA legend Michael Jordan alongside Warner Bros.' animated characters.
SpringHill Entertainment shared an image of a locker room to announce the key players in the film.
"Space Jam 2" will star LeBron as "small forward," with Bugs Bunny co-starring as "point guard". "Random Acts of Flyness" creator Terence Nance will direct the film and "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler will produce.
According to The Hollywood Reporter which first reported the news, production is tentatively slated to being in 2019 during the NBA off-season.
'Space Jam 2' will be LeBron's first big movie role since he appeared alongside Amy Schumer in 2015 comedy film 'Trainwreck'.
Schumer - who also starred alongside Bill Hader in the hit motion picture - confessed: "I wrote him in [the movie] because he's the only basketball player I've ever heard of."
LeBron - who recently signed a huge contract with the Los Angeles Lakers franchise - has been tipped to star in another comedy movie after screenwriter Steve Mallory sold a script to Paramount Players.
