Manages to keep his plate full for some time ahead, rapper-turned-actor T.I. recently revealed to MTV that he has added two more film projects into the roster and would begin shooting them within the next several months.

One of the two appears to be titled "Once Was Lost", which the Atlanta native described as a coming-of-age feature about "the relationship, the bond that was created from two very unlike characters."

"I play a young, money-hungry drug dealer, and Danny Glover is in it with me," he informed. "He plays a senile jazz musician. He kind of tricked me into driving him to Mississippi from Harlem [New York] against my will. We learn so much about each other along the way."

"It's kinda like [an] older generation/younger generation, unlikely bond," he further said. "[It's an] extreme pleasure to be able to work alongside a legend like Danny Glover."

As for the other, it is learned that the flick will be a car-salesman comedy entitled "For Sale" and produced by T.I.'s own Grand Hustle Films shingle. Script is currently being finished, and while a name to direct has yet to be chosen, production is planned to begin at the top of 2008.
