LeBron James Wants to Star in Space Jam 2
With his icon status its easy to forget that LeBron James was just a child in the '90s, and like all millennials he recognize 1996 film Space Jam as the true cinematic masterpiece that it is. So obviously King James would love nothing better than to star in Space Jam 2, which really, the world deserves.
James took to Twitter over the weekend and, as bored celebrities tend to do, took questions from fans. One of whom asked James if he loved Space Jam.

Which, I think everyone in their right mind wishes he could do. The world deserves a proper follow up to Space Jam, the movie in which Michael Jordan traveled down to the Looney Toons universe to team up with Bugs Bunny and friends to take on the evil Monstars. That 2003 Looney Toons flick with Brendan Fraser and Jenna Elfman was a steaming pile of garbage.
If R. Kelly believes he can fly, as he sang on the film's flawless soundtrack, we believe this could happen.
Buzzfeed has its own idea for a sequel in which Jordan returns to team up with the Monstars to take on LeBron and the Looney Toons, but in the end finds out that it's OK to grow old. Which, OK, seems slightly sacrilegious. Michael Jordan can not be evil. At least the Space Jam ideal of Michael Jordan can not be evil. We're not really sure where to go with this, but please, someone, just make sure Bill Murray comes back for the sequel.
