  • Space Jam 2 has added Ryan Coogler and Terence Nance

Not only did he make a move to the Western Conference in signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, but he and Maverick Carter's SpringHill Entertainment expanded their portfolio to include "The Shop" on HBO, "Do or Dare" on Facebook Watch and the upcoming docu series "Warriors of Liberty City" on Starz. Though not much of a success critically, the film brought in $230 million worldwide and remains the highest-grossing basketball movie of all time.

"I loved his vision for 'Black Panther, ' " LeBron told The Hollywood Reporter.

A source told ESPN that James was personally involved in recruiting Coogler.

The original Space Jam debuted in 1996 and starred Michael Jordan, playing himself, alongside a cast of Warner Bros.' Looney Tunes characters and the likes of Bill Murray and Wayne Knight. The visual was meant to confirm James and Bugs Bunny as stars while Ryan Coogler produces with director Terence Nance. Fans had long clamored for a sequel, and when James started appearing in movies the heavy speculation was that he could take over the franchise now that Jordan is in retirement.
