has aspirations of becoming a video game developer, finding

Al-G Rhythm, with the sports star having to lead Bugs Bunny,
Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Lola Bunny and the rest of the
undisciplined Tunes to victory over Al-G's digitized players on
the court to return home and save the world.

James leads an ensemble roster that includes Star Trek:
Discovery star Sonequa Martin-Green as his wife Kamiyah and 
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier's Don Cheadle as Al-G, as well
as Portland Trailblazers' Damian Lillard, New Orleans Pelicans'
Anthony Davis, Golden State Warriors' Klay Thompson and Draymond
Green, Los Angeles Lakers' Kyle Kuzma, Phoenix Suns' Chris Paul,
Phoenix Mercury's Diana Taurasi and Los Angeles Sparks' siblings
Chiney and Nneka Ogwumike. The cast for the film also includes 
Star Trek: Discovery and The Walking Dead alum Sonequa
Martin-Green as James' wife Kamiyah.

After languishing in development hell for nearly 20 years, with
other spin-offs starring Tiger Woods, Jeff Gordon and Tony Hawk
explored, A New Legacy officially entered development in 2014
with James as the star and Justin Lin (F9: The Fast Saga) set in
the director's chair, though after his still-unexplained
departure from the project, Terence Nance (Random Acts of
Flyness) stepped in, only to also depart due to creative

film, with Malcolm D. Lee (Girls Trip) landing the job in the

In addition to starring, James produces the film alongside 
Black Panther writer/director Ryan Coogler, Maverick Carter and
Duncan Henderson while Sev Ohanian, Zinzi Coogler, Allison
Abbate, Jesse Ehrman, Jamal Henderson, Spencer Beighley, Lin,
Nance and Ivan Reitman all executive produce.

In the 1996 fan-favorite original, Michael Jordan teamed up with 
Looney Tunes characters to battle a group of animated aliens on
the court. Space Jam went on to gross $230 million worldwide and
besides Jordan, included some of the NBA's biggest stars like
Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, and Patrick Ewing. Bugs Bunny and
the Looney Tunes will now team with James on the court to battle
an unknown entity.
