Looney Tunes Land will have the power of Wakanda in the newest ‘Space Jam’ sequel starring LeBron James … ’cause the director behind “Black Panther” is officially joining the project!!
The follow-up to the 1996 classic — slated to begin production 2019 — has added Ryan Coogler to the movie as a producer … and Terence Nance will be the director.
LeBron’s got a lot of irons in the Hollywood fire, but this has been by far the most anticipated project since it was announced in 2016.
If Coogler’s name doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve probably seen one of his movies. He’s directed other movies like “Creed” and “Fruitvale Station” … both starring Michael B. Jordan.
Which begs the question … could another MJ team up with Bugs Bunny and Bron in the sequel??
