There have been rumors for years about a Space Jam sequel being released at some point—with this past summer gaining the most traction—but instead of waiting around and seeing who might get a call to star in such a flick, fans of the cult classic can always just flock to Toronto during NBA All-Star Weekend to enjoy a pretty cool experience of the original script.
That’s because it was announced by the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) that there’s going to be a live reading of the original Space Jam that weekend to help fans celebrate hoops in the Canadian city.
According to TIFF’s website, there aren’t many details about who will be starring in the reading, but it does promise “an exciting lineup of talent from the sports and entertainment worlds,” so I really hope that includes Bill Murray and some other actors from the 20-year-old flick.
This isn’t the first time a reading of the script happened, either, as NBA stars like Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan joined a talented cast of entertainers a couple of years ago, with some memorable moments documented by Funny Or Die.

I don’t know what the fuck you have going on Feb. 12-14, but if you liked seeing one of the greatest sports upsets in history on screen, you might want to consider hitting up Toronto that weekend to hear it read to you, too.
