As work continues on Space Jam 2, word has come out that the project has a new director, as Terence Nance is officially out, citing “creative differences.”

Nance is being replaced in the director’s seat by Malcolm D. Lee, known for films like Night School, Scary Movie 5, and Barbershop: The Next Cut. It’s important to note that Nance’s departure from Space Jam 2 is being described as amicable, which is good to hear since it’s normally not a good sign when a director leaves a project.

Space Jam 2 is currently scheduled to be released on July 16, 2021.
