Bruce Willis, Danny Trejo & Kanye West Stop By For Cameos



The full length short film, "The Black Mamba," a collaboration between Nike, Kobe Bryant and director Robert Rodriguez has landed and it's....okay.

The sorta meta concept is a movie about the making of a movie, with Rodriguez pitching Bryant on a movie concept about a hero called "The Black Mamba," and as he describes it, we see what he envisions. Bryant squares off against a monster-fied Danny Trejo, runs into Bruce Willis seemingly reprising his role from "The Expendables" before doing a final battle against zombie looking basketball players commissioned by main baddie Kanye West. It fits very comfortably into the grindhouse wheelhouse for Rodriguez, so if you've worn out your "Machete" DVD this is probably worth a quick spin. Check it out below. [Nike]

    Still nice one Rodriguez! You should cast yourself more.

    Great SFX yet again. Took me back to Sin City for a minute. Tops.

    @BuntyHoven
    Maybe he's getting less roles, but I also think he likes working with Robert Rodriguez, they're good budies.

    Does Bruce Willis have financial issues? He's becoming almost Nicolas Cage-like in his numerous appearances in random projects.
