Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson remains one of the most popular pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He was a true icon in WWE and his stock only rose after The Rock made his way to Hollywood, where he is now the highest-paid actor in the industry.
The long-awaited sequel to the classic 90s movie Space Jam will be releasing this week. The film, titled Space Jam: A New Legacy, will feature LeBron James as he works together with classic Looney Tunes characters to rescue his son from the antagonists of the film.
The film also features Bugs Bunny voiced by Eric Bauza and also includes classic Looney Tunes characters—Sylvester, Daffy Duck, and Lola Bunny, who will be voiced by Zendaya.
While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, film director Malcolm D. Lee talked about his choice of a leading role for Space Jam 3. Lee revealed that he wants to have The Rock star in the film.
“Dwayne Johnson would be an interesting choice. It would be different. I’m not exactly sure what his skillset would be, maybe he goes back to wrestling. That might be interesting.”
Currently, there are no plans for a sequel to Jam: A New Legacy, which is slated to release in theaters and on HBO Max on July 16. We will have to see if it will be a worthy successor to the beloved original film as fans are eagerly waiting for it.
