Dennis Rodman, the infamous two-day Las Vegas bender in the NBA Finals, is set to be the focus of a new Lionsgate film.
Whether it’s the years 1998 Very bad things 2009 The hangover or any party movie set in “Sin City,” the party capital of America, the cinema loves a good party movie in Vegas, especially if things get a little out of hand. Now Chris Miller and Phil Lord are producing what we hope will be the next classic film in this canon, dramatizing Dennis Rodman’s legendary two-day rampage in Vegas that he continued, in the midst of the NBA Finals in which he was playing.
It was 1998, Rodman was one of the star players of the mighty Chicago Bulls and paid in the NBA Finals. Renowned party animal Rodman claimed 48 hours of vacation during the game series, then embarked on a legendary rampage across Vegas, and the film will dramatize one of basketball’s most infamous stories.
Lord and Miller released a statement on the project (titled 48 hours in Vegas), saying, “Dennis refused to follow the herd. That’s what made him a target and it’s also what made him a star. His weekend in Las Vegas is full of fun and twists and turns, but it’s also full of important questions about how public figures and workers are treated, especially when their individuality is so vividly expressed.
Rodman himself will produce the film, and we hope 48 hours in Vegas will be worthy of a place in the list of the great Vegas party movies. We’ll bring you more on this one as we hear it.
