Early in our run on “The Jason Smith Show” on FOX Sports Radio, we were given the story of Dennis Rodman’s trip to North Korea. He was accompanied by a number of ex-NBA players to produce a basketball game in Pyongyang. Along the way, we watched Rodman lead a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday” to Kim Yong-Un.
Well, Jason and I theorized that there was some major coin to be made in the film version of this tale, its origin to completion. Of course, we wanted to see a deep-cover backdrop to the festivities, with the ex-NBA players as highly-trained operatives.
It turns out that 20th Century FOX is in the process of producing a comedy based on the events called “Diplomats.”
