Yes, we know you're psyched for Space Jam 2, but we'd suggest dialling back the excitement.

Justin Lin, who's set to direct the sequel to the 1996 classic, discussed the "logistical challenges" the project was facing during a recent TCA 2017 event: "Warner Brothers has been great, I feel like it's been very precious. Everybody at the studio's been calling, 'Let's go, let's go' and I'm like [it's] not right yet," he said. "To me, the challenge is we have actors who are also professional athletes, so schedule is something that is tough. I've been really wanting to push that genre, but to do that you need the right amount of time. So there's a logistical challenge but also creatively, to do a sequel 20 years later with a new cast and also to be able to, in a relevant way, bring the Looney Tunes back. That's very important to me to do it right. I feel I've done nine different iterations already and we're going to keep going, but we're getting closer every day."

While talking specifically about NBA star LeBron James (who is starring in the sequel), Lin said that it constitutes "a different challenge [from Michael Jordan's] because he's a professional basketball player. He's not retired. When the first one happened, it was during a strike and Michael Jordan was retired. From what I've learned in film, you have to be passionate and when you're ready, you'll make it happen."

So be patient, because it's definitely going to be worth it; and hopefully R Kelly won't be involved this time.
