“Star Trek: Discovery” and “The Walking Dead” star Sonequa Martin-Green is in talks to join LeBron James in the “Space Jam” sequel at Warner Bros. Pictures.
In the original, Michael Jordan teamed up with Looney Tunes characters to battle a group of animated aliens on the court. It went on to gross $230 million worldwide. The new film sees Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes will now team with James on the court to battle an unknown entity.
Martin-Green will play James’ wife in the project. Ryan Coogler (“Black Panther”) will produce and Terence Nance (“Random Acts of Flyness”) will direct. Filming begins this Summer for a July 16th 2021 release.
