Pro-skateboarding legend Tony Hawk admitted that the original Space Jam could have been the first in a possible series of athlete-meets-Looney Tunes movies.

In 2003, he took a meeting with Warner Bros. to discuss Skate Jam. While Space Jam was a mix of animation and live-action, it looks as though Hawk would have been animated. But, it was canceled following the poor reception of Looney Tunes Back In Action. With Lebron James now set to star in Space Jame 2, it’s safe to say Skate Jam will never happen.
