Chris Brown will star alongside Nick Cannon, Cedric The Entertainer & more in the upcoming indie film "She Ball."
It looks like Chris Brown is taking his talents to the big screen again. According to Variety, the R&B singer will co-star alongside Nick Cannon in the upcoming film She Ball. In addition to those two, Cedric the Entertainer, Evan Ross, and Rebecca De Mornay are also set to star in the film as well.
She Ball reportedly centers around a women’s street basketball team. The story will be told through the perspective of Avery Watt, played by Nick Cannon, who enlists a team of bad ass female ballers to help him save the embattled Inglewood Community Center, which he manages while also trying to raise his daughter.
Not only is Cannon one of the stars of the film, but he’s also directing and producing the film as well with Demetrius Spencer of One Media Worldwide and Ball Up, the entertainment studio behind the streetball league.
“I’m very excited for this film. It’s something powerful for the culture, uplifting for the community, and the film’s main objective is to empower women! It’s going to be Ncredible!” said Cannon.
“Basketball has always been a huge part of my life since I was kid,” fellow producer Demetrius Spencer said. “I always wanted to do a movie about the sport that had a feel of the classic urban films I grew up watching. Seeing the love of the game through women’s basketball, the power and incredible strength they deliver on and off the court, makes the movie even more special.”
She Ball doesn't have a release date yet, but it has begun production. Music for the film is being curated by Nick Cannon & Birdman.
