Space Jam director Joe Pytka doesn’t think a sequel to the live-action/animation basketball film is a good idea.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Pytka was blunt about Space Jam 2 with Cleveland Cavaliers star Lebron James. “Don’t do it. It’s doomed,” he said.
“Michael Jordan was the biggest star on the planet.”
The Space Jam filmmaker was calling attention to the fact that James has arguably already been surpassed in the NBA by Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry. And the sequel won’t even be out for at least a couple of years.
