Call it a Twitter head-fake.
In an exchange with a fan, LeBron James was asked point-blank if he planned on making “Space Jam 2,” following another NBA superstar, Michael Jordan, who appeared in the 1996 original.
The Cleveland Cavalier player, who won critical kudos for his comic acting in “Trainwreck,” neither confirmed nor denied the possibility, saying, “Maybe …. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Then he teased that he loves Bugs Bunny & Co., adding, “#LooneyToonsRock.”
The “Space Jam 2” rumors picked up steam after James announced that his company had entered into a deal with Warner Bros. to create film, TV and digital content.
But if James does decide to go one-on-one with Bugs, he’d better be careful: the rabbit just turned 75 years old.
