Justin Lin To Helm “Space Jam” Sequel

Justin Lin (“Fast Five,” “Star Trek Beyond”) is in talks to direct the “Space Jam” sequel starring Lebron James for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Rumors about the film began last Summer after James’ company SpringHill Entertainment signed a deal with Warner Bros. Pictures.

Michael Jordan starred as himself in the original alongside the animated Looney Tunes cast as they battled a group of aliens in an epic basketball game.

Lin and Andrew Dodge are penning the script. Charles Ebersol is producing.
