Deadline just announced that Don Cheadle is joining the cast of Warner Bros.’ Space Jam 2, alongside Lebron James. Cheadle is just coming off of Avengers: Endgame, the second-biggest grossing film of all-time ($2.77 billion). Space Jam 2 is currently in production.
Terence Nance is directing the follow-up to the 1996 movie which grossed over $230M at the global box office. At the time of publication, Cheadle’s role is being kept under wraps.
As a ‘90s kid who grew up watching the original Space Jam movie hundreds of time, I am excited to see what Warner Bros.’ has in store for our favorite Looney Tunes characters and these new faces to the franchise.
Space Jam 2 is due to release on July 2021.
