When Warner Bros. announced they'd finalized a deal with NBA superstar Lebron James last year, many believed this confirmed Space Jam 2 was actually happening. As the NBA player has long been rumored to star in a sequel. The basketball player revealed in March that the project is still "on the radar," but no definitive plans had been set yet. That all changed today, with Star Trek Beyond filmmaker Justin Lin entering talks to direct the Space Jam sequel starring Lebron James.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Lebron James will headline the sequel two decades after the original, with Andrew Dodge (Bad Words) and Alfredo Botello (Hollywood Adventures) coming aboard to write the script. While the project is still in the early phases of development, this new report claims Justin Lin is also helping to prep the script alongside Andrew Dodge.

Bad Boys 3 is just a little over a year away. But it doesn't sound like any progress has been made on the long-anticipated sequel since Sony moved it out of the February 17, 2017 release window, bumping it into summer of next year. By all accounts, the movie should be heading into production soon. But perhaps there is another delay in the cards? Producer Jerry Bruckheimer gave a quick update on the movie this weekend while being honored at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. And it doesn't sound too promising.
"We have to get the script in. Once we get that, we'll make a lot of decisions."
While most assumed that Bad Boys 3 would start production in the second half of 2016, Will Smith is set to start shooting Bright later this year. A cop thriller that revolves orcs and fairies, this fantasy adventure reunites Will Smith with »
Way back in 2011, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane revealed he is writing the script for a new reboot of the cult classic movie, but we haven't heard much about it in the years that followed. Back in 2013, Todd McFarlane teased that this new Spawn movie may start production sometime in 2014, but that never happened. In a new interview with ComicBook.com, Todd McFarlane offered a new update, revealing the script is finally complete, and he hopes to get production started later this year.
"I've finished the script, and I'm in the process of editing. It's 183 pages, and [producers] usually like 120. I still think it's going to end up being about 140, because I'm putting in details for myself. (It's) a director's script." (I want to get it to) a spot where I can walk this into Hollywood and start hooking the actors."
Todd McFarlane also revealed that he wants to direct the movie himself, »
Bad Boys 3 is happening in a big way, and it promises to take the action over the top. While he hasn't been officially confirmed to direct yet by Sony Pictures, action maestro Joe Carnahan is already in the previsualization stage for the movie, and is now teasing a freeway chase involving a motorcycle on his official Twitter page. This may be all the confirmation we need that the man behind such action favorites as Smokin' Aces, The Grey and the big screen A-Team adaptation is joining forces with returning stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith. Though, he won't reveal the identity of the man on the motorcycle, only saying this.
"...who is this man? ...and how bad is he?"
Back in June, we reported that Sony's long-awaited Bad Boys 3 is finally coming together, with Joe Carnahan coming aboard to write and direct the sequel. Just a few months later, Sony announced that Bad Boys 3 will arrive on February 17, 2017, with Bad Boys 4 set for July 3, 2019. While the project is certainly moving forward, the studio still hasn't confirmed whether or not Bad Boys and Bad Boys II stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will return for the sequel. During a radio interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra, Will Smith confirmed that both he and Martin Lawrence will be back as Mike Lowry and Marcus Burnett.
"I saw Martin a few weeks ago. I hadn't seen him for about two years, and we just looked at each other. We hugged and in that moment we both knew we were making another Bad Boys. So we're definitely doing another one."
