Space Jam 2 has been in development with James’ production company for years now, but the film is finally making its way to the big screen thanks to Coogler’s knack for commercial success.

The film will be directed by Terence Nance, but James tells The Hollywood Reporter that he’s excited about Coogler’s “vision” for updating the classic.

“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” said James.

“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,” he continued, “and I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”
