After more than two years of rumors, Warner Bros. finally confirmed in May that Space Jam 2 is happening with current NBA superstar LeBron James and Star Trek Beyond filmmaker Justin Lin entering talks to direct. While we don't know when exactly the movie will hit theaters, or even when production will start, Andrew Dodge (Bad Words) and Alfredo Botello (Hollywood Adventures) have come aboard to write the script, which Justin Lin is helping to develop. Today we have word from original Space Jam star and NBA legend Michael Jordan, about who he'd like to see star in this sequel. And guess what? It's not LeBron James!

When Sony announced its plans to reboot the iconic classic Ghostbusters with an all-girl cast, the news brought a lot of haters out of the woodwork, many of which expressed their dissent on social media. Before and during production, director Paul Feig fired back at those who claimed this reboot would ruin their childhood by assembling a team of female Ghostbusters, but that hasn't stopped angry fans from spreading their hate. A new YouTube list recently surfaced featuring the 100 most disliked videos of all time, and the Ghostbusters trailer that debuted in March is the only movie trailer on the list. The list was compiled by the YouTube channel My Top 100 videos, with the Ghostbusters trailer ranking 21st with 523,376 dislikes, just between Justin Bieber's music video for Sorry (551,000 dislikes) and Taylor Swift's Shake It Off music video (522,000 dislikes).

There's been something of a shake-up behind the scenes with Space Jam 2. LeBron James is still set to star in the movie alongside the Looney Tunes, but there's been a change in directors. Terrence Nance, who had originally been tapped to helm the long-awaited sequel, has vacated the project shortly after production got underway. Warner Bros. isn't skipping a beat though, as they've tapped Malcolm D. Lee, the filmmaker behind Girls Trip, to step in and take his place. According to a new report, the parting of ways with Terrence Nance and Space Jam 2 was amicable. There is no indication that it was some overly dramatic production fiasco or anything along those lines. It isn't clear if the change-up will result in any sort of production delay. In any event, switching directors after filming has already gotten underway on a big movie is no small thing. That said, Malcolm D. Lee would seem to be highly qualified for the job. Nance had limited experience heading into this gig, having created … [Read more...] about Space Jam 2 Brings in Malcom D. Lee to Replace Exiting Director Terrence Nance
