According to reports, Lionsgate is releasing a movie about Dennis Rodman’s famous trip to Las Vegas during 1998 NBA Finals. This interesting development has been reintroduced to popular culture by ESPN Films and Netflix’s Last Dance documentary miniseries.
The “48 Hours in Vegas” will be produced by Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Rodman. Rodman will serve as executive producer. It is expected that Rodman and his assistant GM embark on an adventure that leads them to a surprising friendship. Lionsgate was reportedly interested in Jordan VanDina’s screenplay and actively pursued the rights to the film.
“There is only one Dennis Rodman. 1998 was the year that there was no one on Earth more fun–or perhaps more dangerous–to party with than Dennis Rodman. But that’s only half of his personality,” stated Nathan Kahane, President of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group. “This movie will take you on an unforgettable journey with Dennis, the legend and the man behind all you think you know. Add “Dennis,” whose incredible career and life will make for an entertaining, yet humane, and emotionally charged movie. Do you think that you know much about “The Worm?” You just have to wait! ”
While Chris Miller and Phil Lord said that Dennis refused to follow the herd, it was Dennis who made this statement. This is what made him a target, and also made him a celebrity. While his weekend in Las Vegas was full of high-jinks and fun, it also raises important questions about how workers and public figures are treated. This is especially true when one’s individuality is so clearly displayed. “
