Dwyane Wade Interested in Playing Role in Space Jam 2
- Updated: May 22, 2016
The recent news of a planned sequel to the 1996 film, “Space Jam,” has captured the attention of the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade, who has indicated that he would be willing to appear in the film, if asked.
That request will likely come, considering that Wade’s close friend and former teammate, LeBron James, is scheduled to star in the film. Wade’s interest was first reported by Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel, with Wade indicating that a new generation of players are around to offer an updated take of the 1996 film, which originally starred Michael Jordan.
“I would. I would be interested in it,” Wade said. “Why not?” Obviously the first one was with Jordan and so many great players, so why not have one for this generation if it can be done?”
No timeline has been released as to when shooting would take place. James, whose Cleveland Cavaliers team is currently in the Eastern Conference Finals, released a statement when news of the sequel was originally announced.
“I have a great team that’s handling my affairs off the court. Ever since I signed with Warner Brothers, we’ve been looking to do some things and figure out some things that best fit both sides,” James said. “My team is handling that, and I’m not going to take my focus off what my job is right now, and that’s being in the postseason right now.”
Earlier this year, Wade made an uncredited appearance in the sequel to the film, “Ride Along,” playing himself.
