Deadspin reported July 22 that Warner Bros. Studios and LeBron James had established some sort of partnership to develop possible movies and TV shows.
SpringHill Entertainment, the company James co-founded with Maverick Carter, already produces television shows and web content, and James has expressed his desire to branch out into the entertainment world. (His largely praised role in Trainwreck is just a start.) "To be able to partner with Warner Bros. will allow me to do some things I've always dreamed of," James said in a statement.
To them, and everyone else, that seems like a pretty clear indicator of a sequel to Space Jam
You want more proof? Fine.
Deadspin also pointed out that Warner Bros. filed a new trademark for 'Space Jam' last month.

Whew, we are just in an orgy of 1990s renaissance here and it sure feels sticky. Between Xena Warrior Princess, a little Netflix thing called Fuller House, and some show called X Files or something, the entertainment industry just really wants you to feel the dread of mortality by showing how much everyone has aged.
That doesn't really apply to the cartoons in Space Jam or a rebooting with LeBron James but...
Already dreading the 2000s nostalgia train that will leave the station in about five years or so.
