That’s it. Enough is enough. Hollywood needs to stop playing with our emotions.
In the past I’ve already written about how Space Jam is the greatest thing to ever happen to North America, and these past few years, rumors have consistently circulated around the internet about a sequel. Needless to say, this is great news.
The dudes in charge of making movies have fueled the speculation with announcement after announcement after announcement. At least once a year, Hollywood “officially confirms” that the film is finally coming, and every time we fall for it again — only to be let down again. It’s become an annual tradition, like Thanksgiving or getting gonorrhea. The movie industry is emotionally manipulating us like an abusive husband and frankly it’s getting out of hand.
The story is that Space Jam 2 will star Lebron James. Dope! Sounds great to me. Same formula but with Lebron instead of Jordan? I’m in. Sure, R. Kelly might be an inappropriate choice for the soundtrack now that we know about his hobbies, but it’s all good. A Space Jam sequel with Lebron is exactly what humanity needs right now. And it’s right within reach. So close within our grasp, yet so far away.
Director Justin Lin (known for directing the Fast & The Furious) is signed to direct the movie. But the release date keeps getting pushed back like an ugly son in a family photo. Yesterday he gave an update saying that it IS coming… one day. He explained the scheduling is difficult and how we wants to make sure the script is perfected. But he assures us that it WILL happen. Well I’ll believe when I see it, Justin.
Stop blue-balling us.
