LeBron James, Blake Griffin Could Team Up, Not In Los Angeles But In ‘Space Jam 2’
Few would forget Michael Jordan sharing the screen space with a host of Looney Tunes characters in Space Jam and the makers are all set to rope in LeBron James for a sequel of the movie. Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin also expressed desire to be a part of the Space Jam 2 movie.Advertisement
Michel Jordan was not the only star attraction of Warner Bros. Space Jam. Some of the coolest basketball players of the time made cameos in the movie, and there is no reason to think that Space Jam 2 will refrain from bringing in its own team of present-day stars.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Griffin used to be a great fan of Space Jam and said he would love to appear in the sequel if opportunity presented itself. The 27-year-old NBA superstar said he even had a Space Jam-themed birthday party as a kid.
“If you told me at 8 years old that I would have an opportunity to maybe be in the second Space Jam movie, my mind would have been blown,” the Hollywood Reporter quoted Griffin as saying at a Beverly Hills event at the Ermenegildo Zegna boutique organized in support of Team Griffin. “That was one of my favorite movies.”
The forward is positive that Space Jam 2 will also be able to make a mark like its predecessor.
“All these remakes that are happening now, it’s always fun to see a fresh take and to see how people really put a lot of detail, attention and passion into it because they know a lot of people are fans of the original. I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with that,” he said.
However, it is too early to draw conclusions, as the star said he is not yet sure of making a big screen debut. “I wouldn’t say I have aspirations to go into acting on my own,” he said. But added that since he is a big fan of Space Jam, he would be delighted to be a part of it.
“But like I said, being such a huge fan of Space Jam, if the opportunity presents itself, I’m all for it,” said Griffin. According to a report by the Cinema Blend, Justin Lin will be directing Space Jam 2. However, the rest of cast besides LeBron James are still unknown at this point.
