A comedy movie based on former basketball player Dennis Rodman's recent trips to North Korea is in the making. It will portray the weird basketball star’s overtures to North Korean dictator Kim. Although the topic is a serious one, since the dictator has been accused of the worst human rights abuses, making light of the situation may be a means of defusing the tension. 

The movie will be called Diplomats. And it will either show Dennis Rodman or another substitute actor in his place. The Chicago Bulls star has been guilty of trying to get chummy with the dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong-un.  He has made two trips to North Korea up until now. 

Dennis even sang a song to the dictator on his birthday. When asked regarding all this, Rodman explained that he was trying to create goodwill between the United States of America and North Korea. The fact that Kim has imprisoned and executed hundreds of thousands of dissidents is the stumbling block. 

Nevertheless, Hollywood takes everything as grist for its mill. That is why a pitch for the comedy movie Diplomats is being taken into consideration. And the scriptwriter is at his writing assignment in full swing. 

The movie will not be based on real life (obviously since it is a comedy). But Dennis Rodman’s hoops diplomacy will be parodied mercilessly. There is a chance that both Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong-un will boycott the movie since it pokes fun at them. And there is the likelihood that the movie won’t get directed in the first place. 

But if things go as per plan, and serendipity has its way, the spoof will most probably make it to the DVD shelves. Twentieth Century Fox is ready to make this movie a reality. And like such previous movies as Borat and The Dictator by Sasha Baron Cohen, this one will most probably be a barrel of laughs.
