Anyone who grew up in the 90s or early 2000s has, at the very least, heard of Tony Hawk, pro skateboarder and inspiration for the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater video game series. The movie Space Jam is also likely a fond childhood memory.


For anyone unfamiliar with Space Jam, it stars Michael Jordan and the Looney Toons, who have to compete against a team of invading alien basketball players to thwart their evil plans. It featured a clever combination of live-action and animation that was practically unheard of when it was released.

Recently, Tony Hawk revealed on Twitter that he was in talks with Warner Brothers about a film to be called Skate Jam, back in 2003. It would have featured Hawk and the Looney Toons in a similar story concept as Space Jam.

Unfortunately, Warner Bros' Looney Toons movie Back In Action was a box office flop at nearly the same time they approached Hawk, so the project was shelved without ever being made.

Fans on Twitter immediately showed a keen interest in the movie, some even calling for it to be made immediately.








Several people expressed regret that they will never be able to see this masterpiece of Millennial nostalgia.






Given Hollywood's recent penchant for rebooting familiar franchises, maybe there's still hope? There is definitely a market of nostalgia-seeking skater and gamer kids who would jump at the chance to relive this portion of their adolescence.

Machelle Hackney, 48, the creator of popular YouTube channel "Fantastic Adventures," has been arrested after police, searching her apartment, found extensive evidence that she abused her children.

She was charged with "two counts of child molestation, seven counts of child abuse, five counts of unlawful imprisonment and five counts of child neglect."
