NEW YORK (AP)
Denver's Carmelo Anthony and Orlando's Dwight Howard will star in a basketball film with an award-winning Chinese director titled ''Amazing.''
Some of the biggest NBA stars aren't as great as everyone thinks. See Charley Rosen's All-Overrated Team and also his All-Underrated Team.
The NBA and Shanghai Film Group announced the joint production effort on Tuesday, calling it ''the first NBA-themed motion picture outside of North America.''
The filming will take place in New York, Beijing and Shanghai through November and feature top actors from Asia.
The movie is scheduled to open next summer.
''Amazing'' is directed by Hu Xuehua, a winner of the Kennedy Center Honors.
The NBA will play its fifth set of preseason games in China when the Houston Rockets and New Jersey Nets play in Beijing and Guangzhou in October.
