Yes, R&B singer Trey Songz is heading to the big screen. The Atlantic Records recording artist will be starring in yet a 3D remake of the 1974 classic horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre:
[Trey] Songz will play the male lead and the boyfriend of the previously-cast Alexandra Daddario in the Millennium/Nu Image pic, which will be released on October 5, 2012 by Lionsgate. Chainsaw will be Songz’s big screen acting debut — the part allows the budding thespian to be physical, romantic and heroic. [SOURCE]
The 3D film begins filming later this month in Shreveport, Louisiana. The film was written by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan, Kirsten Elms, with John Luessenhop (Takers) directing the project.
I’m glad he’ll be playing one of the lead roles as opposed to just being on the cast. That means hopefully he won’t be killed within the first 10 minutes of the film. (Y’all know how these films do LOL) Congrats to him nonetheless!
Now that Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is making its way to theater screens, the movie adaptation is finalizing its cast cast members. The newest additions are singer/actor Chris Brown and actress Meagan Good! The two will be joining the likes of Regina King, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, LaLa Vazquez, Michael Ealy and more! I can’t even front. This may be a pretty good film! What do you all think?
It has been 2 years since comedian/TV personality Mo’Nique made her award-winning performance in the hit movie Precious. Word on the street is that she’s stepping into acting once more and will be starring in an upcoming film called Bumped.
The Stephen Herek-directed and Lizzy Weiss-written film follows “five strangers whose personal lives are both revealed and changed during a long layover at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport”. Mo’Nique will be playing a supporting role in the indie dramedy alongside actress Xenia Siamas and actor Alex Gonzalez. No word on whether the film will be filming soon. [ SOURCE ]
