Carmelo, Dwight to star in Chinese NBA movie "Amazing"


Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard are going to star in the new Chinese NBA movie “Amazing”. The movie doesn’t appear to be like the usual basketball movie though. It operates under one innovative premise as Li Anlan of the Shanghai Daily notes.

    For the first time, the NBA is partnering with a non-US film studio to release a major film overseas, the     producers announced at a global press conference [...]

    “Amazing,” a production by the Shanghai Film Group, tells the story of a fictional world known as “The Sixth     Sense.” It uses basketball imagery to combine the visual elements of a video game with a movie, akin to     the 2010 American science fiction film “Tron: Legacy.”

Sixth Sense? Akin to Tron? This definitely isn’t Kevin Durant’s “Thunderstruck” film (which looks awful). I cannot wait.
