Those Space Jam 2 rumours were actually false

The claims have been slam debunked by sources close to LeBron James.

THERE’S NO POINT getting ready to ‘jam’ again because that Space Jam sequel the internet lost its collective head about over the weekend is not happening.

Not right now anyway.

The usually reliable Deadline had fans jumping for joy when it reported that LeBron James was getting ready to team up with Bugs Bunny for a follow up to the 1996 original.

The animated/live action movie – about a bunch of cartoon characters who enlist the help of an NBA star to beat some basketball-playing aliens – wasn’t exactly a box office hit, but it still has a significant fanbase.

Deadline said plans were already in place but a source close to James debunked the rumour, telling USA Today Sports that the NBA player had has “no discussions about participating in any Space Jam sequels”.’s NBA writer Brian Windhorst also confirmed the news via Twitter.

That doesn’t mean he’d be opposed to the idea though, sure wasn’t he tweeting about it back in the summer of 2012?

Anyway, it’s still not clear whether or not Space Jam 2 will happen, but there are plenty of people willing to give the writers a hand with any potential script.

Some would like to see a Revenge of The Sith style sporting comeback.

Meanwhile others are too busy dealing with the news that the rumours were false to even think about a sequel right now.
