Rapper Lil Wayne is currently shooting “The Patriots” alongside Oscar winning actor Forrest Whitaker. The Patriots centers around a basketball team comprised of students who previously went to five different high schools before Hurricane Katrina. “Lil Wayne has been tapped to play a character named “Lamont,” a student of Al Collins High School who is skeptical of the newly formed team.”
I’m guessing there will be conflict between the students because they don’t like each other, possibly have affiliations with rival gangs, and lack basic team work skills to win games. I will also assume Forrest Whitaker will play the coach who brings these kids through adversity and helps them realize that all they have is each other. At the very last possible minute the team will gel and go on an impressive winning streak and make it to the state championships, only to lose the big game by 1 point. That’s okay though, at least they still have each other!
Yeah… these basketball movies are fairly predictable.
I’d much rather Lil Wayne spend his time on more important things….. like finally putting out The Carter III. Judging by how many times it’s been delayed, America will pull out of Iraq before this album finally hits the shelves.
