Space Jam 2 director and producer announced.
LeBron James' media company SpringHill Entertainment revealed new details for Space Jam 2 today, confirming that the sequel to the classic 1996 film is officially in the works.
The info came by way of a photo that shows four lockers in the Tune Squad locker room, including one for the four-time NBA MVP. While it remains to be seen what NBA stars other than LeBron will be featured in Space Jam 2, we now know who will be directing and producing the film.
According to today's locker room snapshot, Black Panther director Ryan Coogler has signed on to produce the film while Terence Nance has been pegged as the director. Of course, there's a locker for LeBron's co-star Bugs Bunny as well.

It's been a busy offseason for LeBron to say the least. 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. Additionally, the duo is responsible for the competition reality series "Million Dollar Mile" on CBS, limited scripted series "Madam C.J. Walker," and game show "The Wall" on NBC.
On top of all that, LeBron will serve as an executive producer on a new NBC comedy called "Brotherly Love" based on Simmons' life, and he has also teamed up with actress Elizabeth Banks to produce a new drama series entitled "Hoops."
