NBA Star Kevin Durant To Make Film Debut In Warner Bros. Film?

Despite the fact that he’s a reigning two-time NBA scoring champ, with a strong following in the basketball world, Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant is not the first name that comes to mind when most casual fans think of superstar players. That could soon change, with word that Durant is likely to sign on to star in a yet-to-be-named Warner Brothers Pictures film. Film production is expected to begin in mid-September, with a shooting location having been narrowed down to either Oklahoma City or Baton Rouge, LA.

According to The Oklahoman, all that’s known thus far is that the film will have a basketball-centered subplot.

Durant is known for being one of the more reserved players in a league full of loud and sometimes unpredictable personalities. So there is already some skepticism being expressed with regard to the level of acting ability he may possess.
