According to ESPN, Kyrie Irving will be starring in a horror movie which was inspired by his experience in Oklahoma back in February 2016.
The sports site revealed that Irving while playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, removed himself from a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder after just nine minutes into the game.
After the game, he claimed that the flu symptoms were caused by the numerous bed bug bites he endured when the team stayed at the notorious Skirvin Hotel.
Numerous guests and some NBA stars sworn that they encountered paranormal activity during their stay in the hotel.
The report revealed that the hotel owner W. B. Skirvin had an affair with a chambermaid named Effie during prohibition. She became pregnant with Skirvin’s child and was locked in a room on the 10th floor of the hotel. After she delivered the baby, she later went mad and jumped out the window with her infant, killing them both.
Since then, numerous guests have reported hearing the incessant crying of a baby during their stay. Others claimed to have seen the apparition of a naked woman while they showered, and there have been reports of unmanned maid carts rolling down the hallway.
Another NBA guard Lou Williams said he was so spooked by the aura of the hotel, he refused to stay there as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers when the team played the Thunder in 2015.
Irving will make a return visit to the Skirvin Hotel, and this will be made into a movie, courtesy of Imagine Entertainment which announced on Monday that it has optioned a Players’ Tribune oral history article on the Skirvin Hotel.
