LeBron's Production Company Is Hinting At Some Major Future News

LeBron is now a Southern California resident. The NBA's best player signed a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers worth more than $150 million. Big things are coming for King James.

These big things aren't limited to what's taking place on the court, either. There are some who believe LeBron's decision to go to Los Angeles was about his off-the-court businesses as much as the on-the-court stuff.

LeBron is on his way to becoming a multi-media mogul, with various companies involved in several aspects of the industry. One aspect of the industry LeBron is set to become heavily involved in is movies. His role in Trainwreck was widely lauded and he wants to be more involved in films moving forward.

Earlier this week, LeBron's production company, SpringHill Entertainment, might have hinted at some major future news.

LeBron has been linked to a "Space Jam 2" movie for several years. Earlier this summer, there were reports that a trailer was on the way. It's unclear if that's still going to happen, but LeBron's production company is teasing at some major future news.

SpringHill Entertainment's social media accounts posted old Space Jam photos on Twitter and Instagram.

Warner Bros., the studio behind the Looney Toons and Space Jam, also shared the image on social media.

The original Space Jam movie came out in 1996 and starred Michael Jordan. It's become a cult classic for all basketball (and cartoon) fans.

A sequel starring LeBron and maybe some other NBA stars would be incredible. It's a movie all of the basketball world is hoping to see.

The film's rumored director, Justin Lin, spoke about the possibility a year ago:

"Warner Brothers has been great," Lin said during a Television Critics Association panel, per Fred Topel of Slash Film. "I feel like it's been very precious. Everybody at the studio's been calling, 'Let's go, let's go,' and I'm like, '[It's] not right yet.' To me, the challenge is we have actors who are also professional athletes, so schedule is something that is tough. I've been really wanting to push that genre, but to do that you need the right amount of time. So there's a logistical challenge but also creatively to do a sequel 20 years later with a new cast and also to be able to, in a relevant way, bring the Looney Tunes back. That's very important to me to do it right. I feel I've done nine different iterations already, and we're going to keep going, but we're getting closer every day."

LeBron hasn't really commented on the idea lately, but perhaps since he's now in Los Angeles, more talk of a "Space Jam 2" will be had in the months to come.
