While it took 25 years for the Space Jam: a new legacy to become a virtual reality, ideas are already flowing in for who could play in the next Looney Tunes sports tournament. A new legacy the suggestion of director Malcolm D. Lee? Retired wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“Dwayne johnson would be an interesting choice ”, Lee tells GE. “It would be different. I’m not sure exactly what his skills would be, maybe he goes back to wrestling. It could be interesting.
We can see it now, with Bugs Bunny and the gang swapping their jerseys for wrestling unitards, and Taz absolutely mocking a technologically advanced alien. It all comes down to whether or not they could actually write the the third Space jam Payment.
“I never say never,” continues Lee. “It will all depend on the positive response from the fans to this. But I think the bar has been set so high when it comes to the first with this iconic Michael Jordan global superstar, and now the same iconic LeBron James global superstar, who transcends sports. Who is the next person to put in this universe? And then you have to find a script and a story that is good enough not to repeat what has been done, but that will capture its spirit and keep it going. “
Maybe Johnson can fight the properties of Warner Bros. with a VR headset turned on in the space. As lifeless as the last interpretation of Space jam turned out to be, it’s not too obvious to suggest Johnson as a potential star for a third film. Although he is not a basketball player, he is definitely still a ball player, now. the level of charisma it got him fame as a wrestler all those years ago.
Unlike James and Jordan, Johnson has good acting experience, which could improve the visibility of a third film. Instead of watching the wacky attempts of professional sports stars to act alongside cartoon animals, you could watch a former professional sports star turned actor in fact act with cartoon animals.
As much Johnson is known for his WWE wrestling career, Johnson had leading roles The Fast and the Furious franchise, disney Moana, and stars to come Jungle cruise movie alongside Emily Blunt. Addicted to action movies, Johnson will play his first superhero role as DC Black adam. To say these performances are Oscar worthy would be a gross exaggeration, but Johnson was shocking Highest-paid actor of 2020, which is more than LeBron or Jordan can say about their acting careers.
Plus, their three last names start with “J”, and that would be fun?
