Nick Cannon and Birdman Producing New Basketball Film
Nick Cannon is diving back into film, and it looks like he’s recruiting a music mogul to join him on his creative streak. According to reports, the former America’s Got Talent host and Birdman have been meeting frequently to discuss working on a potential basketball movie together in the future.
Sources at TMZ reveal that the two are hoping to produce the film together, with the end product being “like Save the Last Dance meets Love & Basketball… with a twist of Above the Rim.”
During a dinner earlier this week, the two met with both Wack 100 and Frisco Chuck to discuss the details of creating the movie, who may help with the funding of the film, as well as act in it. Reports also say that Cannon wrote the treatment, and came to Baby with the idea. They’ve reportedly recruited The Game to have a role in the movie. So far, things seem to be coming together fast, but there’s no word on the title, when it could be released, or what the exact storyline may be.
However, Cannon and Birdman have already started looking for locations in Inglewood, and filming is set to kick off this July.
