SONEQUA MARTIN-GREEN HAS BEEN DRAFTED
THE WALKING DEAD & STAR TREK STAR JOINS SPACE JAM 2
Space Jam 2 sort of flew under the radar of most film fans, especially when considering the star (LeBron James) was too busy playing in the NBA to really commit to the film. Fans of the original film probably don’t want a sequel film anyway. Now with LeBron sitting out the NBA Playoffs and his full-time residence being L.A., LeBron is ready to start production of the film.
It was reported earlier that Ryan Coogler was appointed to produce the film and another major name has now signed on to play LeBron’s wife: Sonequa Martin-Green. For those who don’t know, Green currently stars in CBS’ Space Trek: Discovery and played Sasha Williams on The Walking Dead before that (with an actual epic death if I don’t say so myself). She’s proven to be able to handle very stressful roles with her past characters, so it will be refreshing to see how she reacts to LeBron Jame’s acting and possibly interacting with cartoons.
Nothing else is known about her character, but a significant amount of details have actually released this past week via Nerdist. Space Jam 2 will premiere July 16, 2021.
