    It's crazy that Dan Castellaneta (Homer Simpson) is in Space Jam as an actual actor and had no part in the voice acting.

    easy to say that now, but Lebron and Space Jam 2 (warner bros) have been talking about this for years (at least 2) and Curry wasnt the international phenomenon he is now. Lebron brings all his buddies with him (allegedly), so if warner bros would of screwed lebron now and switched to curry their might be some bad blood there and these stars might not sign on to do the film

    just a thought

    Lebron has also shown that he can act reasonably well. He may have been the best part of Trainwreck.

    Magic Johnson Talks LeBron James Topping Michael Jordan in 'Space Jam' Sequel

    [​IMG]


    LeBron James can be better than Michael Jordan—at least as a Space Jam star. The Los Angeles Lakers legend caught up with TMZ Sports on Sunday and said he "thinks" James could top Jordan in the upcoming sequel.

    "Well he's gonna have to top [Jordan], but he'll do good," Johnson said.

    James, 31, is slated to star in the unnamed Space Jam sequel, which is finally getting off the ground after years of speculation.





    Rebecca Ford of the Hollywood Reporter reported director Justin Lin, best known for the Fast and Furious series, had signed on as director and co-screenwriter. The movie is part of a multimedia deal James signed with Warner Bros. last July, which covers movies, TV and Internet endeavors for his production company.

    The film has not been officially announced, and it's unclear when production would begin. James' Cleveland Cavaliers are rampaging their way through the Eastern Conference playoffs at the moment, and he's expected to be part of Team USA's Rio Olympics bid. That would leave precious little time for an entire movie production, especially considering the writers are just now in place.

    A more likely scenario would see James filming the movie next summer with plans of releasing it the following year. Plus, as James said last year, there will be tough negotiations with the Looney Tunes to be had.

    "We're definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and Tasmanian Devil and every last one of them, so hopefully we can do some great things," James said last year, per Scott Stump of Today.com.

    The original Space Jam was a huge moneymaker for Warner Bros., bringing home $230.4 million worldwide. While it was critically panned, Space Jam was a beloved staple for children of the 1990s—to the point it's an untouchable classic in some eyes. There is even aChange.org protest of the sequel.

    Despite the trepidation, this appears to be full-steam ahead. TMZ Sports reported Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith is already being eyed for a role, and James said Cleveland's sweep of the Atlanta Hawks may have opened some time in his schedule to formalize details.

    "My team is taking care of that. I want J.R. to do everything," James said, per Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com. "Obviously, I've got so much other stuff right now that I'm not even. I may have some time this week. So if I get a phone call throughout this week, I'll let you know. I haven't even brought that up."

    As for Johnson's role in the whole thing, he's likely just being his always-supportive self. Or, if the Hall of Famer was thinking sneakily on his feet, a movie career may just be part of Johnson's push to lure James to Los Angeles.

    J.R. Smith Reportedly Contacted for Role in 'Space Jam' Sequel


    J.R. Smith's career has had so many ups and downs and strange moments that it would arguably be more realistic if it were part of a movie. If the producers of the upcoming Space Jam sequel reportedly have their way, his larger-than-life antics could be making their way to the big screen.

    TMZ Sports reported producers have been in contact with theCleveland Cavaliers guard about a potential part in the unnamed film.

    "There is mutual interest," Daniel Hazan, who represents Smith, said.

    The 30-year-old does not yet have a defined role for the film. The TMZ report indicated producers are considering him for a voice role at the moment.

    Either way, it's likely Smith is benefiting from being teammates with LeBron James, who will reportedly star in the film, according toRebecca Ford of the Hollywood Reporter. The four-time league MVP agreed to a multimedia deal with Warner Bros. last July, with a sequel for the 1996 classic expected to come some time in the future. Ford also reported earlier this month that Justin Lin of Fast and Furious fame had signed on as the project's director.


    The first film, which starred Michael Jordan, also featured a Hall of Fame cast of NBAers in minor roles. Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Shawn Bradley, Larry Johnson and Muggsy Bogues made brief appearances in the film. They all played themselves, so it's possible Smith's role would be something similar.

    Lin, Andrew Dodge and Alfredo Botello will combine to write the script, per Ford. There is no set date for the film's release—it'd be nearly impossible for James to film this summer, assuming he plans to play for Team USA at the Rio Olympics—so producers have time to fill needed roles.

    Smith is nonetheless a perfect comedic asset for a project like this. The guy oozes two things: bad jumpers early in the shot clock and charisma. Given the writers could script the former out of the filming, the latter should be allowed to shine.

    Just look at this list of ridiculousness from Smith's time with the New York Knicks; the writers wouldn't even have to include fiction for him. Just take elements of his real life and translate them to the screen. Or, better yet, if this whole Space Jam thing doesn't work out, give Smith his own reality show. We all know it'd be worth watching.
