    Warner Bros. and LeBron James announced a partnership on Wednesday that would cover projects ranging in TV, film and original digital content.

    “LeBron James has one of the most powerful, well-known brands in the world and we are excited to be in business with him and his partner, Maverick Carter, and SpringHill Entertainment,” Warner Bros. CEO and Chairman Kevin Tsujihara said. “The combination of LeBron’s global media presence and Warner Bros.’ unmatched production and distribution expertise is a big win for fans everywhere.”

    While no specific projects were mentioned, eagled-eyed Capital New York reporter Alex Weprin noticed this:

    Warner Bros. filed new trademarks for "Space Jam" last month. Today announced deal with LeBron James.

    Just one month after the patents for Space Jam were renewed, we get a LeBron James deal.

    Lock it up. Get on the phone with Bill Murray and Yosemite Sam. We got a picture to make.

    Any guess on the other players? My guess would be

    Melo
    CP3
    Wade
    Kevin Love (There needs to be a white guy)
    Anthony Davis

    They won't make one of Lebron's current teammates a "bad guy" but I think you are right in that there is a good chance Melo/CP3/Wade are all involved

    I'll sit this one out. Building MJ's practice court for the last one damn near killt me.

    Hope they get a better director this time. Pytka was a poor choice.

    Pytka was the director for the popular Nike ads at the time. Not a feature film director. Bit of an asshole. His personal assistant Colleen was cute in a Ginny Weasley kind of way, tho.

    I was working standby up in Arrowhead for the golfing scenes. Watching Larry Bird deliver his lines made me want to gouge my eyes out and tear my ears off.

    Silly movie, but it kept me busy for a few months, and they did pay me during my honeymoon, so there's that.

    MJ is going to show up at The end of the game so it's believable that the toon squad get a clutch victory.

    1. who knows if he is even interested in doing it
    2. You know Kevin Hart is getting a major role in the film and it makes sense for him to play the celebrity who thinks he is good enough to play in the NBA but can't for obvious reasons, (Murray-White, Hart-short)

    They should use Kobe in the MJ role, the only reason the Monstars didn't sap MJ's game was because he retired, that could still apply with Kobe, no so much with Lebron.

    I have a feeling the movie will be set during last summer with the narrative tweaked so that lebron has decided to leave basketball because he has lost his love of the game playing for a team he doesn't like being on. Insert bugs bunny for the next 70+min, finish movie with Lebron announcing he is going back home to cleveland with a renewed love of the game.

    this is assuming they use the same based on IRL storyline as the original
