Space Jam 2 has a date to bounce into theaters.
Warner Bros. on Thursday announced it will open the LeBron James pic on July 16, 2021. Black Panther filmmaker Ryan Coogler is teaming with James on the long-anticipated follow-up to the Michael Jordan-Bugs Bunny hit Space Jam (1996).
Coogler is producing Space Jam 2, which Terence Nance, who created HBO's Random Acts of Flynes, directing. It will be James' first starring role after a successful turn as a supporting character in the 2015 Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck.
