“48 Hours in Vegas” was first announced in March 2023, with Majors due to play the eccentric basketball superstar during a film spotlighting what may have been the wildest weekend of his NBA career. The former Chicago Bulls forward famously left the NBA finals midway through for a trip to Las Vegas, where he reportedly partied with Carmen Electra and appeared in a World Championship Wrestling event alongside Hulk Hogan.

As recounted in the Netflix docuseries “The Last Dance,” coach Phil Jackson allowed Rodman to leave the post-season for a quick vacation, but when he didn’t return in time, Jackson and fellow teammate Michael Jordan had to go to Sin City to retrieve him themselves. At the time of the film’s initial announcement in 2021 (Majors was not yet attached at that point), CBS Sports quoted Lionsgate’s Nathan Kahane as saying:

“There’s only one Dennis Rodman. In 1998, there was nobody on Earth who’d be more fun — or maybe more dangerous — to party with. And yet that’s not even half of who he is. This movie takes you on an unforgettable ride with the myth, the legend, and also the man that Dennis is, behind everything you think you know.”

According to CNN’s sources, Lionsgate has now released the project back to its producers so that it can be shopped around. It may find a new home, it may ultimately end up back at Lionsgate, or it may simply remain stuck in development hell.
