"It's Doomed"

... Or so says the original Space Jam's Joe Pykta about an all-new Jam:

... "Don't do it. It's doomed. Michael Jordan was the biggest star on the planet. ... They all had a persona that complemented the film. There are none around like that now." ...

Okay, so Back In Action, the semi-sequel to the Michael Jordan movie, didn't float like a butterfly nor sting like a bee. (The only sting felt was to Warner Bros.'s wallet, as it grossed only $20 million in the U.S. of A. back in ought-three).

But that was then, this is now. And I have NO idea if Warners will go the hand-drawn route, or the CGI route with the newer offering. (Or if it's been decided. Maybe the information is out there someplace, but I haven't seen it). The way Hollywood goes, the corporate overlords at Warner Bros. will take few chances and charge down the goat path marked with the big neon sign: "Computer Graphics -- this way!"

Add On: And then there was this plea ... from way before the feature was announced:

... I’m hoping [LeBron James] can help out with the one terrible aspect of the original film: the characterization of Lola Bunny. James has spoken out about feminist issues before, and although Trainwreck may not be a bastion of feminist thought, I’ll take the crumbs of hope for the moment. Yep, that’s how bad Lola came off in Space Jam: I’m willing to settle for hope-crumbs. ...
