Dennis Rodman’s infamous trip to Las Vegas in 1998, in a New Movie
With the return of the Chicago Bulls Dream Team to the windows, thanks to the Netflix and ESPN production The Last Dance, the stories around the mythical team led by Phil Jackson and commanded by Michael Jordan on the field, came to life again.
The idea of ”48 Hours in Las Vegas” is to see the controversial star and an assistant general manager go on an adventure that leads to an unlikely friendship.
According to reports, the script, written by Jordan VanDina, instantly interested Lionsgate, so they actively pursued the right to the film.
The plot is planned for Phil Lord to produce and Chris Miller to serve as executive producer.
“There is only one Dennis Rodman. In 1998, there was no one on Earth with whom it was more fun, or perhaps more dangerous, to party with. And yet that’s not even half of what it is”, said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group President, Nathan Kahane.
Dennis Rodman’s “Vacation” in Full Finals
The story of how these unexpected “vacations” occurred was explained by Michael himself during The Last Dance, which includes the reactions of Dennis Rodman himself, as well as Scottie Pippen and coach, Phil Jackson.
“This movie takes you on an unforgettable journey with the myth, the legend and also the man that Dennis is, behind everything you think you know.”
It is still unknown when this film may be released, although more details about it could be known in the coming weeks.
