MVP and two-time basketball champion LeBron James has found himself following in the soaring footsteps of the legendary Michael Jordan in many-a-way over his storied career. However, if reports that surfaced today are to be believed, stepping onto the big screen isn’t one of them.
Indeed, the net was swarmed today with news that James signed on to star in ‘Space Jam 2’ – the sequel to Jordan’s commercially acclaimed, yet critically panned, children’s movie co-starring beloved Looney Tunes characters.
But, almost as soon as the story started to buzz, James’ camp cooled the news by slamming reports that the basketballer had the animated feature film in his sights.
Well it was fun while it lasted. LeBron sources refute Deadline report, there's no Space Jam 2 or Warner Bros. project in works
