Peter Gibbons : It's not just about me and my dream of doing nothing. It's about all of us. I don't know what happened to me at that hypnotherapist and, I don't know, maybe it was just shock and it's wearing off now, but when I saw that fat man keel over and die - Michael, we don't have a lot of time on this earth! We weren't meant to spend it this way. Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about about mission statements.
Warner Bros. faced a similar problem with Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword , a critically mauled fantasy action-drama that failed to make back its $175m budget and could lose the studio upwards of $150m. It also killed their dreams of a six-film Arthurian saga stone dead. Few blockbusters, however, sank as hard as Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets . France’s most expensive film ever, and one of the priciest indie productions on record, held no sway for American audiences unfamiliar with the comic series it was based on, and it debuted as a sluggish 5th place at the box office upon its release.
In February 2014, Warner Bros. announced a potential sequel set to star LeBron James . Charlie Ebersol was set to produce, with a script by his brother, Willie.  Representatives of James denied the claim that he would be involved.  In May 2014, James was quoted as saying, "I've always loved Space Jam. It was one of my favorite movies growing up. If I have the opportunity, it will be great."  In July 2015, James and his production company, SpringHill Entertainment, signed a deal with Warner Bros. for television, movies and digital content after receiving positive reviews for his acting role in Trainwreck .    On May 2, 2016, Justin Lin was said to be in talks to direct the sequel; co-writing the screenplay with Andrew Dodge and Alfredo Botello.  In August 2016, the Sneaker Bar Detroit company said that the movie is still in the works.  On November 15, 2016, the film's anniversary, a teaser trailer, in the form of a Nike advertisement, was released on Twitter under #MonstarsBack.  On December 1, 2016, Bugs Bunny and the Monstars returned in a Foot Locker commercial starring Blake Griffin and Jimmy Butler .
