Not only do Spike Lee and Ray Allen appear on board for He Got Game 2, Zion Williamson could join the project as well.

Lee said he "tried to get a meet and greet" with the rookie before the coronavirus pandemic and planned to attend a New Orleans Pelicans home game. 

He added Denzel Washington is not interested in a sequel, but a film could definitely be on the way.

"The story is murky in my mind but the material is so rich," Lee said.

Williamson had previously discussed doing a sequel during an interview with Brady Langmann of Esquire last October. 

"I would definitely want to be like, in the part two of that movie," he said.
