Still no indication of a Space Jam 2 released date at this time.

As previously announced, James is starring in the project, which will be his first appearance on the big screen since 2015's Trainwreck.

It remains to be seen what the plot of the new Space Jam will be, but it's safe to say that it will be something similar with other popular basketball players of the current era appearing in the film.

Heading into the 16th year of his professional basketball career, James has continued to perform at a high level and achieve many accolades, most recently bringing a championship to Cleveland as a part of the Cavaliers roster in 2016.

"The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie".

Caution urged over Capt Cook's ship find
Researchers narrowed down the search for Endeavor from 13 vessels to five and now are confident they found the right site. It was the ship in which the explorer charted New Zealand and Australia between 1769 and 1771.

Black Panther director Ryan Coogler will produce the film while Terence Nance has been pegged as the director.

Space Jam 2 will play a bit on the debate of who is the GOAT between six-time National Basketball Association champion Jordan and (so far) three-time National Basketball Association champion James. Anyone excited for Coogler's next project after the record-breaking Black Panther, here's your chance. And indeed, The Hollywood Reporter said on Wednesday that Coogler has been attached to the picture and James, who spoke publicly about the importance of Black Panther to people of color, raved about him. Do your dance. Because it's Space Jam.

According to the Reporter, the new film will be directed by Terence Nance and production is slated for 2019 during the National Basketball Association offseason. "For Ryan to be able to bring that to kids, it's awesome", the soon-to-be Los Angeles Laker said. But LeBron told THR the movie is not about that debate, but for a new generation of kids to be influenced by what many hope to be an instant classic.

The original Space Jam, released in 1996, starred Michael Jordan and the cartoon cast of Looney Tunes.
