Fox to make buddy comedy based on Kim Jong-un and Dennis Rodman's bromance
It's hard not to look at the story of Dennis Rodman and North Korea's Kim Jong-un and think that it would make a great movie. According to a recent report, that is exactly what film house 20th Century Fox is doing. The company has purchased the rights to Diplomats, a movie based loosely on Dennis Rodman's trip to North Korea where he organized a basketball game in what he calls "hoops diplomacy."
While there is no script for the project yet, it will be directed by Ride Along director Tim Story. This is not the first time that Kim Jong-un has been front and center in a major motion picture as Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are making a movie called The Interview where a talk show host gets an interview with Kim Jong-un and is asked to assassinate the leader.
