In February of 2014 Warner Bros. announced plans of a sequel with James signing on board. “I’ve always loved Space Jam. It was one of my favorite movies growing up. If I have the opportunity. It will be great.” He added. A year later in July 2015 James along with his film company SpringHIll Entertainment signed on with Warner Bros for film, TV & digital content distribution. Ryan Coogler is a producer on the film as well as Malcolm D. Lee as the Director.
