Kevin Durant the Movie Star – Watch Him Discuss “Thunderstruck”

2012 February 24

Kevin Durant is starring as Kevin Durant in an upcoming movie that appears to be the classic “trading places” movie and is DEFINITELY not Space Jam (yes it is). You can read the synopsis of the movie below and watch video of Kevin Durant and crew discussing the flick. Again, I repeat… this is not Space Jam. Even though Durant loses his powers, there are NO aliens.


A fun and energetic family basketball movie starring KEVIN DURANT AS HIMSELF, a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 16-year-old fan.  When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan, magically switches basketball skills with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team … while Kevin Durant suddenly can’t make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner involves working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero’s season.  “Thunderstruck” stars the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant as himself, Taylor Gray (Nickelodeon’s “Bucket & Skinner’s Epic Adventures”), James Belushi (“According to Jim”) Brandon T. Jackson (“Tropic Thunder”), Doc Shaw (“Pair of Kings”) and Tristin Mays (“Victorious”).

A Warner Premiere Presentation, “Thunderstruck” is directed by John Whitesell (“Malibu’s Most Wanted,” “Big Momma’s House 2”) from a teleplay by Eric Champnella (“Mr. 3000”) and Jeff Farley and a story by Jeff Farley.  Mike Karz (“New Year’s Eve,” “Valentine’s Day”) produced the film.
