Modest Movie Predictions: #1 Space Jam
h _ The nostalgia stew that is Space Jam cannot be
f':.':"',"' ' . "I understated. Looney Tunes, basketball, Michael
I . Jordan, and cheesey R& B were seme of the
biggest trends in the 90' s, Space Jam is a near
perfect sterm of childhood memories, Our
generation' s strange obsession with nostalgia
ensures that this mettle will get the typical
Gillyweed regurgitation treatment. The only real
digestions are the "when" and "hens".
Ir/ r/ hen- This is a tricky guess, Looney Tunes has
been attempting a camelback but it' s
success; is debatable. Heavyer. basket-
ball is pretty strong right new and execs
might look to capitalize en that. They may
also put it on the till the late
Bill' s! early Hill' s kids age a bit and have
children. Careful planning could ensure it
makes a fuckitol of maney by hooking the
kids and parents equally.
HOW This is wen tougher to pin dawn. At the most basic Isle producers will have We
1. 25. sequel: This is mere likely if the movie is made within the next Seven to ten
years. It would may star Michael' s sen er a salid NBA player. but it weild def-
intell star Md in seme capacity.
2. A Reboot: Mere likely if this project is made later en to catch my generation +
em kids. Everything else is a really. but it probably wait include Jordan
er any of the original cast (including the Looney Tunes voices)
Regardless there are a few things that are assured:
The Tarantino reference will be switched from Pulp Fiction to Kill Bill
Lola will not be depicted as sexy, at least not as much as in the original,
The aliens will not be frem Mars. Webern landed, the mystique has evaporated, its

something along the lines of, "lathe do I leek like, Michael Jordan?" "Whe' s
Why it could be ' :' Devito, Jordan, and, most importantly, Murray are all still kicking around,
It' d be pretty fucking to see that endscreen reunion. Plus, I for
ens lewd the Looney Tunes.
Why it could suck: The actors and the soundtrack, Bill Murray and Danny Devito wen' t be
around forever, and may not swan be willing to work en the project, It really
deosn' t masterlee replaces them, no ens can follow those twe acts. And
the soundtrack.? Bitch, shut yew mouth, The original theme seng is intouch-
able and I' m terrified to see what weild replace it considering em current
music scene. The 90' s was a time of strange. music and we aren' t
getting that back any time seen.
