It’s no secret that a lot of NBA players invest in movies. I know of a few former and recent Indiana Pacers that do so, not to mention Baron Davis has his own company here in Los Angeles. The list goes on and on, but one to note is New York Knick Amare Stoudemire who may be dabbling in a little trailer park violence.
According to the NY Post, the Knicks star, who’s also a fashion designer and actor, is now in discussions with Relativity Media mogul Ryan Kavanaugh to executive-produce the long delayed The Strangers 2, a sequel to the 2008 chiller The Strangers.
The original flick starred Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a couple staying in an isolated summer house who are terrorized by masked assailants.
It was produced by Relativity’s Rogue division with a mere $9 million budget and grossed more than $80 million worldwide.
Stoudemire raved about The Strangers to the Post at Tuesday night’s Whitney Art Party in Chelsea, which he co-hosted along with Shala Monroque and Eddie Borgo. “Ever see ‘The Strangers?’ It’s a scary movie . . . It’s crazy,” he told them.
Good, now throw some of that $100 million in Kavanaugh’s pocket and get us a movie!
