LeBron James will reportedly star in Space Jam 2.

He might be joined on the silver screen by Cavaliers teammate J.R. Smith.

TMZ:

TMZ Sports has learned producers have already reached out to Cavs star J.R. Smith for a role in the flick.

We spoke to Smith’s rep Daniel Hazan … who says producers contacted him a few weeks ago to see if Smith would be down for a part — and J.R.’s ears perked up.

“There is mutual interest,” Hazan says.

As for the role — nothing’s set in stone, but producers have kicked around the idea of Smith possibly voicing an animated character … a la “the Monstars” from the original.

This is the advantage of playing with LeBron. It brings opportunities often reserved for All-Stars like Blake Griffin and Isaiah Thomas, who want parts in the movie.

Just something to keep in mind as Smith can hit free agency this summer.
