LeBron James Really Wants 'Space Jam 2' To Happen

"We're definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and [the] Tasmanian Devil."

"Space Jam 2" is something LeBron James would really like to see happen. 

On Friday, "Today" co-anchor Willie Geist asked the NBA player, who was the surprise star of "Trainwreck," if he has more plans to make movies.

"It's a passion of mine. Everything I do, I have a passion about it. If we could continue it, I know I don't have to dribble a basketball and fly through the air to do those type of things," he told Geist. 

The 30-year-old's production company, SpringHill Entertainment, signed a partnership with Warner Bros. this past July, which sparked rumors that a sequel to the 1996 movie, which starred Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny, could be in the future for James.

When asked if "Space Jam 2" could be more than just rumors,  James said, "We hope so. We're definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and [the] Tasmanian Devil and every last one of them, so hopefully we can do some great things."

Warner Bros. has yet to officially announce plans for a sequel, but James' enthusiasm, coupled with the fact that the studio filed for new trademarks for "Space Jam" in June and that it remains the highest grossing basketball movie of all time bodes well for the future of "Space Jam 2."
