20th Century Fox is making a movie about everyone’s favorite washed-up basketball player and crazed, borderline-genocidal dictator duo.

“Diplomats” will supposedly center around a Dennis Rodman-type figure and a more comedic Kim Jong-un, reports The Hollywood ReporterThe movie is just an idea right now but they’ve already got Tim Story, the director of “Ride Along,” signed on as well as the producer of the Sandra Bullock movie “The Heat.”

Rodman got a lot of attention after he struck up a weird, alcohol-fueled and presumably somewhat-lucrative friendship with Kim Jong-un, the world’s youngest despot. The one-time basketball superstar checked then himself into rehab earlier this year.
