What we do know for sure is that Space Jam 2 is in the works. What we know as a POSSIBILITY is that LeBron James is set to star in it – should the deal not fall through in the end. Now there’s another possibility, and it’s that LeBron‘s Cleveland Cavaliers teammate J.R. Smith just might be joining him on screen.
Smith‘s rep, Daniel Hazan, tells TMZ that the film’s producers called a couple of weeks ago, and that Smith is absolutely interested. No specifics have been announced yet, but they did mention “providing the voice for an animated character.”
Both Smith and his rep are hopeful that they can come to an agreement with the studio, but it all just “depends on the deal.” Fingers crossed!
