The Hornets All-Star is an executive producer of Asylum, the first feature film from his production company.
SI: How much acting goes on during an NBA game?
Davis: There's a lot of guys who could win Oscars for the things they do and get away with. I'm not going to say any names, but Reggie Miller could definitely win an Oscar.
SI: Your movie Asylum, a dark romance starring Natasha Richardson and Ian McKellen that is due out in October, has nothing to do with sports. Why?
Davis: I had a lot of projects coming to me, but I wanted to do something that would set me apart from other athletes in the entertainment business.
SI: You're developing a movie called Blacktop, about Los Angeles streetballers who enter a million-dollar tournament in the South. You'd like Justin Timberlake to play the lead, right?
Davis: Yeah. I haven't got a script to him yet, but I mentioned it to him in the summer. I know he's a basketball fanatic, and he has some game, too. When I was thinking about this project, I was drinking about him.
SI: Unlike Asylum, this is your concept, right?
Davis: I came up with it. For my next project I wanted it to be something I can be involved in throughout the whole process.
SI: You know, if you write in a part for Janet Jackson as the female lead, this movie will do Lord of the Rings business.
