Kobe is going to be in a Robert Rodriguez 'movie'

It's being called a movie, but it's really more of a longer, more creative shoe advertisement. At least that's what I'm thinking it is.

Via the OC Register, Kobe Bryant has filmed a movie in which he acts in it. (So no, this isn't a sequel to Kobe Doin' Work.) A real director is filming (Robert Rodriguez of Spy Kids , Planet Terror and Sin City fame.)

The movie, as it's being called, will be released during All-Star weekend. I don't if know if "released" means in a theater where you buy a ticket, but I assume it means that the full version will be posted on the Internet.

But this is no Kazaam. Kobe's movie is all being done as a promotion for the Zoom Kobe VI shoe and Bryant’s new “True Colors” apparel line. It's being billed like this: “The world’s best basketball player. … Biggest challenge yet. … Kobe Bryant is the Black Mamba. … A Robert Rodriguez film.”

Of course this isn't Kobe's first adventure into acting. He appeared in Call of Duty's new commercial for Black Ops recently sporting a huge grenane-launching gun. As for this film, I would assume it's just going to be a super long commercial and not actually a two-hour full-length feature film. Please don't let it be a full-length feature film.

This is BS. Who cares about a short-film promoting a shoe? Kazaam was a real movie that had something to say. That movie reached out and touched an entire generation.

Who cares about the low life POS Kobe Bryant? Wonder if they're going to shoot the movie at a Resort in Colorado? Probably not. But on the positive side for Kobe Bryant.. it won't cost him another 20 carat diamond ring. Then again...
