About a month ago, we all caught wind of Kevin Durant’s burgeoning movie career, imagining the various movies he might be appearing in. It was an exciting time, as we finally got to see a young superstar capitalizing on his fame, making moves in a new industry and just generally getting ready to be a household name. This is Kevin Durant’s moment.
And it all starts today, as filming for “Switch” begins in Baton Rouge, LA. Even better, Caballero Casting has the synopsis for the movie. Just going to go out on a limb here, but I think you are going to love it so much.
In a magical twist, Kevin Durant switches all of his basketball-playing skills with an enthusiastic young fan who becomes the star of his high school team … and leaving Durant and the Thunder helpless. With the playoffs approaching, they need to discover what it is that brought them together before the early end to the Thunder’s season.
So basically, “Space Jam” plus “Like Mike” with a little bit of “Slam Dunk Ernest” mixed in, but all set in high school. I guess. Beats me, but I assume that a lot of this is going to hit home for Russell Westbrook.
The question, however, is if there are going to be other Thunder in this. I mean, if they’re having to cope with “the early end to the Thunder’s season,” it sounds like we’d be seeing some other Thunder, right? At the very least, Byron Mullens is available.
