Extra! Extra!



That’s right. Kevin Durant will depict Kevin Durant in said film, previously titled “Switch.” The plotline, from an earlier press release:

“A fun and energetic family basketball movie starring Kevin Durant AS HIMSELF, a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 14 year old fan. When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team…while Kevin Durant suddenly can’t make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner involves working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero’s season.”

How heartwarming! It’s as if “Space Jam” never even happened!
