Warner Bros.’ “Space Jam 2,” starring LeBron James and produced by Ryan Coogler (“Black Panther”), is set to film in California, reports Variety. The upcoming sequel is one of 15 film projects that have been selected for the state’s Film & TV Tax Credit Program 2.0. “Space Jam 2” received the largest conditional allocation with a $21.8 million tax credit. “Mouse Guard” scored the second-biggest cut ($10.2 million) of the new $73.3 million available in tax credits.
One of the goals for Program 2.0 is to bring production jobs and spending to regions across the state. Warner Bros.’ “Space Jam 2” is on track to generate more than $100 million in qualified spending, including almost $43.2 million in below-the-line wages. The original version of “Space Jam” starred Michael Jordan.
