Dennis Rodman’s North Korean Adventures Inspire New Movie

Get ready, America, because Worm and Un’s Excellent Adventure is coming soon to a theater near you!

Okay, not really.

But Dennis Rodman‘s North Korean adventures are the main inspiration for a new movie called Diplomats, a comedy about, presumably, what happens when someone whose diplomatic skills can be summed up on the tip of a bow playing the world’s smallest violin goes abroad to a nation like North Korea.

The movie, being directed by Ride Along director Tim Story, was just acquired by 20th Century Fox, and while details are scant, the movie “is described as a two-hander that takes its cues from the antics of the 6-foot-7 former NBA player Rodman.”

So presumably we’ll be seeing hilarious moments of a washed-up celebrity singing “Happy Birthday” to a despot or ranting on TV, only in the movie, there’s gonna be some kind of weird twist, like said celebrity becomes self-aware enough to recognize the error of his ways or he was actually doing the right thing all along and manages to melt the heart of the emotionless tyrant.
