The “Space Jam” reboot has been a long time coming – decades, in fact – and we now know when it will be landing in movie theaters, according to NBCSports.
“Space Jam 2” has been given an official release date of July 16, 2021, so we’ve got just over two years to wait, according to Springhill Entertainment.
Right now, it doesn’t look like Jordan will be involved in the film, and the new movie will act as a reboot of the franchise, rather than a sequel.
“There’s already been one that was good, we gotta make a film that’s great,” James’ childhood friend and filmmaking partner, Maverick Carter, said.
He added of the potential of Jordan being involved. “Hopefully there will be a role for Michael if he wants it.”
Space Jam 2″ will be produced by “Black Panther” writer/director Ryan Coogler and directed by “Random Acts of Flyness” creator Terence Nance.
“Space Jam 2” will hit theaters July 16, 2021.
