**(AllHipHop Rumors)**Word around the league was that King James had a difficult time gathering teammates for a sequel to Space Jam. But it seems like LeBron James may have worked his magic once again. Killing two birds with one stone, he also may have found a way for fellow Los Angeles Laker Anthony Davis to recoup that 4 million he may leave on the table because of the trade.
James reportedly has put his newest teammate in Space Jam 2. The Bron and The Brow will be playing against aliens (Although no plot for Space Jam 2 as of yet) before they try to bring a chip to L.A.
Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported Anthony Davis, along with Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, and Klay Thompson will join LeBron James in the Space Jam 2 cast. WNBA stars Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike are all slated for roles. Additional NBA and WNBA players are also expected to be part of the cast.
After years and years of speculation, the film will finally begin production this summer and is scheduled to be released July 16, 2021. It's been a long-rumored project that has been years in the making, with numerous starts and stops. The film project was first announced way back in 2014 before going through a bunch of changes and ultimately finalizing its producers last year.
The 1996 original starred Michael Jordan and fellow NBA stars Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Shawn Bradley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, and Muggy Bogues in the main cast. A number of other NBA players made cameos and legendary Bill Murray also made a memorable appearance in the film.
Actress Sonequa Martin-Green has been tapped to play LeBron's wife in the film. At the present time, no other actors or comedians have been announced for the project.
We’ll have more as the story develops.
