A new movie surrounding Dennis Rodman’s wild trip to Las Vegas during the 1997 to 1998 NBA season is in the works, and Rodman will have a major hand in it.

As Deadline reports, 48 Hours in Vegas takes inspiration from the former Chicago Bulls star’s trip, which was highlighted in the ESPN docu-series The Last Dance.

Lionsgate will produce the movie, and Rodman will executive produce it.

According to Deadline, the storyline will surround the unexpected friendship between Rodman and an assistant general manager for the Bulls.

Details on when the movie will be released are forthcoming.
