R&B/Pop singer Chris Brown has told MTV that he next will star in a basketball drama entitled "Phenom."
Roles seem to keep coming for Chris Brown following the recent success of his film debut "Stomp the Yard."
MTV has revealed that the R&B/Pop sensation is set to topline a basketball drama feature titled "Phenom", which is likely to be his next big screen project after family-friendly holiday flick "This Christmas."
"Basketball is my thing, other than singing and dancing, and that's what I'm gonna show the world," so Brown told MTV News while remarking that casting is in progress and that he is trying to have "Training Day" helmer Antoine Fuqua onboard to direct.
"[We] wanted to pick a movie that I could be comfortable with, and that I could really do something in it," the singer added.
Exact date for production start has not been known yet, but Brown is noted to expect filming on the picture can begin by early 2008 for a late 2008 or early 2009 release.
