Rebecca Ford, a reporter from the Hollywood Reporter, reported that director Justin Lin of Fast and Furious fame has been signed on as director and co-screenwriter. A source close to Mega Hollywood Studio confirmed that Warner Bros. has also hired Andrew Dodge, writer of the 2013 comedy Bad Word, to co-write for the film. While little is known on the cast as of now, basketball superstar LeBron James is set to star in the sequel as part of a multimedia deal James signed with Warner Bros in July for movies, TV and internet endeavors for his production company.
Joe Pytka, the director for 1996's Space Jam, advised the film's creators "Don't do it. It's doomed. Michael Jordan was the biggest star on the planet." He goes on to comment that Lebron James' popularity and skill has already been surpassed by the likes of Steph Curry or other basketball atheletes. He went on to say that "when we did Space Jam, there was a perfect storm of players and ex-players available — Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing," says Pytka. "They all had a persona that complemented the film. There are none around like that now."
