If you loved ESPN’s The Last Dance documentary, you’re about to get another documentary based on an infamous Las Vegas trip.
Deadline.com reported on Monday that Lionsgate has won the rights to a new movie on Dennis Rodman’s legendary trip to Las Vegas in the middle of the 1997-98 NBA season. The working title of the film is “48 Hours In Vegas.”
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the filmmaking duo known for making movies such as “21 Jump Street,” “The Lego Movie,” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” will help produce the film. Rodman will also be one of the executive producers.
While Rodman’s off-court headlines always gathered attention, on the court, he was a beast. Rodman, a Hall of Famer, was a seven-time rebounding champion, five-time NBA champion, two-time Defensive Player of the Year, two-time All-NBA selection, eight-time All-Defensive honoree and two-time All-Star.
