48 Hours in Vegas (P: Lord/Miller) ó based on Dennis Rodmanís bender

Dennis Rodman’s infamous 48-hour romp through Las Vegas midway through the 1998 NBA Finals is set for a movie treatment by producer Lord Miller for Lionsgate.

48 Hours in Vegas, based on a screenplay by Jordan VanDina, will portray Rodman’s madcap adventure in Sin City with his skittish assistant general manager just as the Chicago Bulls were on the verge of completing their second threepeat in eight years.

“This movie takes you on an unforgettable ride with the myth, the legend, and also the man that Dennis is, behind everything you think you know,” Nathan Kahane, president of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, said in a statement.

The film will be produced by Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Aditya Sood for Lord Miller. Ari Lubet, Will Allegra and Rodman will executive produce.

“Dennis refused to follow the herd. That is what made him a target and it’s also what made him a star. His weekend in Las Vegas is full of fun and hijinks but it is also full of important questions about the way public figures, and workers are treated, especially when their individuality is expressed so vividly,” producers Lord and Miller said in their own statement.

Too bad a 37 year old Olivia Wilde is a little too old to play a 27 year old Carmen Electra. That seems like it would be good casting to me.

I’m guessing this will probably be like the Hangover.

I would love to see them pull off a bio movie about someone without showing that person very much.

48 Hours in Vegas Dennis Rodman Jonathan Majors

Maybe this would work better on a streamer?

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas ... except when you're Dennis Rodman.

Then a 48-hour stay in Sin City is turned into a movie.

The upcoming film about Rodman's impromptu trip to Las Vegas while playing for the Chicago Bulls during the 1997-1998 season is appropriately called "48 Hours in Vegas" and stars "Creed III" antagonist Jonathan Majors as the eccentric basketball Hall of Famer.

So, Majors is going from being Michael B. Jordan's co-star to portraying a former teammate of Michael Jordan.

"Hopefully, I get to sit with him and chat with him when we get closer and [are] trying to get the script right," Majors told the Associated Press of Rodman, who is listed as one of the film's executive producers. "All these things, all these industry things. I never really put a ceiling on myself, but this is definitely a role where I'm pushing that ceiling out. Because he demands that. He's such a full individual, so he's going to demand a lot and I have to figure out how to get that."

The Bulls had to do the same with Rodman during his time with the team. That was why head coach Phil Jackson permitted Rodman to take a Las Vegas getaway during Chicago's off days.

It would be a blow to the ego if you played Rodman with no makeup or prosthetics
