After seeing these two in the newspapers and on television, we realized we finally had the casting ready.”
Both Jong Un and Rodman immediately accepted their roles int he remake. “We we’re almost surprised at how fast they accepted,” Weinstein recalled. “They just love spending time together and this is going to give them even more of that. We did a read-through last week and they were so on point. We’re really looking forward to getting this movie going and we think people are really going to love it.”
The film will be in production staring next month and it should be hitting theaters in the summer of 2015.
