Space Jam Live Read During NBA All-Star Weekend


Since the NBA All-Star game is taking place in Toronto this year, TIFF has decided that weekend would be the perfect time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Space Jam by putting on a live reading of the script.

"In celebration of Space Jam's 20th anniversary and the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto on February 14, TIFF Next Wave presents a live read of this Looney Tunes/​​live-action mashup with an exciting lineup of talent from the sports and entertainment worlds," reads a statement on TIFF's official website. "Stay 'tooned' via social media for cast announcements!"

Space Jam debuted in November 1996 and featured NBA superstar Michael Jordan teaming up with the Looney Tunes to defeat a group of aliens -- who stole their basketball skills from other NBA superstars -- in a basketball game that would decide the fate of Earth.

Over the past couple years, there have been rumors of Space Jam 2 starring LeBron James being in the works but those rumors have cooled off.
