Published September 20, 2018

Attention all children and fans of the '90s, this is not a drill!

Space Jam 2 is officially happening, and it's going to star none other than LeBron James. 

LeBron's production company, SpringHill Entertainment, posted a picture to social media that appears to be a cartoon locker room with player's cubbies. From the looks of it, Bugs Bunny will be returning to the sequel and HBO's Random Acts of Flyness director, Terence Nance, will direct.

Also on the team is Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, who will produce the highly anticipated film. 

Although there are no other details about the project, people are assuming, based on the cast and crew, that this sequel will take the iconic movie to new shades of black. 

Additionally, LeBron has secured Jemele Hill to narrate his upcoming documentary, Shut Up and Dribble, named after the insult Fox News' Laura Ingraham hurled at James for voicing his political concerns. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hill will narrate the three-part film, which is set to air in November on Showtime. 

“I think LeBron, like a lot of people, has been very frustrated by the behavior of this administration,” Hill tells The Hollywood Reporter. “[Black Americans] feel very insulted and vulnerable within this time because of who’s in charge.”

The film is set to showcase in-depth interviews from Isaiah Thomas, Charles Barkley, Kevin Durant, Sway Calloway, Jay-Z and more.
