The original movie was released 18 years ago and starred Michael Jordan alongside characters from the Looney Tunes universe. Bill Murray, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Shawn Bradley and Muggsy Bogues also appeared.

The sequel has been rumoured to feature James, who currently plays for the Miami Heat.

Charlie Ebersol, whose sports series NFL Characters Unite airs on USA Network, will produce, while Willie will write the screenplay. Willie previously won an Emmy for the London Olympics.

Meanwhile, James has a couple of other Hollywood projects in development.

His new comedy show Survivor's Remorse was recently given a series order by Starz, while he's also signed on to star with Kevin Hart in an upcoming basketball-themed comedy film.
