Black Panther director Ryan Coogler will produce the film while Terence Nance has been pegged as the director. Not only did he make a move to the Western Conference in signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, but he and Maverick Carter's SpringHill Entertainment expanded their portfolio to include "The Shop" on HBO, "Do or Dare" on Facebook Watch and the upcoming docu series "Warriors of Liberty City" on Starz. Coogler has directed recent hits such as "Black Panther", "Creed" and "Fruitvale Station" - all of which star Michael B. Jordan.

The original Space Jam is the highest grossing basketball movie of all time and featured cameos of NBA stars at the time, such as Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing.

"I loved his vision [for Black Panther]", James told the Reporter.

Space Jam 2, the sequel to the classic "90s basketball movie starring Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes, will finally get a sequel". "So there's a logistical challenge but also creatively, to do a sequel 20 years later with a new cast and also to be able to, in a relevant way, bring the Looney Tunes back". 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. It was announced via James' movie shingle, Spring Hill Entertainment.
