Dennis Rodman In Korea Story Becomes A Film

“Ride Along” director Tim Story is set to helm 20th Century Fox’s comedy “Diplomats,” a film inspired by Dennis Rodman’s “hoops diplomacy” mission to North Korea.

Rodman visited North Korea last year and befriended the country’s dictator, Kim Jong Un. He returned there last month after organising a basketball game in Pyongyang.

Jonathan Abrams is writing the script while Peter Chernin (“The Heat”) will produce the film which is described as a “two-hander” comedy that takes its cues from those real life events.
