Lebron James is due to take the lead for the film, which comes 22 years after the original live-action animated comedy starring Michael Jordan, and is set to start production in 2019 during the NBA off-season.
The two-time Olympic gold medal winner, who joined Los Angeles Lakers in July, said he loved Coogler’s vision for Black Panther, which has proved a box office success this year.
“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” Lebron James told the Hollywood Reporter.
“It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams.
“And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”
