Sonequa Martin-Green Goes From “Star Trek” To “Space Jam”
You may know her as Micheal Burnham from “Star Trek Discovery” or Sasha Williams in “The Walking Dead”, but it looks like she is in for a big change as the actress is in talks to join the cast of “Space Jam”.
According to this report from Variety, Martin-Green is rumored to play the part of Lebron James’ wife in the sequel to the 90’s hybrid animated/ live-action hit, which will hit theaters on July 16, 2021.
The original film, which starred Michael Jordan, was a box office smash in 1996, and Warner Bros. is banking that this sequel will do just as well, despite being over 20 years later.
Terence Nance, creator of the HBO show “Random Acts of Flyness,” is directing the untitled sequel, with “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler producing with James and his partner Maverick Carter.
