Via the OC Register, Kobe Bryant has filmed a movie in which he acts in it. (So no, this isn’t a sequel to Kobe Doin’ Work.) A real director is filming (Robert Rodriguez of Spy Kids , Planet Terror and Sin City fame.)
The movie, as it’s being called, will be released during All-Star weekend. I don’t if know if “released” means in a theater where you buy a ticket, but I assume it means that the full version will be posted on the Internet.
But this is no Kazaam. Kobe’s movie is all being done as a promotion for the Zoom Kobe VI shoe and Bryant’s new “True Colors” apparel line. It’s being billed like this: “The world’s best basketball player. … Biggest challenge yet. … Kobe Bryant is the Black Mamba. … A Robert Rodriguez film.”
