The 'Kiss Kiss' singer will join Josh Holloway in a dance-themed drama that follows a group of American breakdancers who must compete at an international championship in France.

Chris Brown has nabbed another big screen role after he starred in 2010's "Takers". The 22-year-old R&B star has been cast to join "Lost" star Josh Holloway in "Planet B-Boy", a drama about breakdancing, which is based on a 2007 award-winning documentary of the same title.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie project is scheduled to kick off the production this week in Los Angeles before moving to Montpellier, France. Benson Lee, who directed the original documentary version, will serve behind the lens with Brin Hill and Chris Parker penning the script.

The story focuses on an all-star American B-boy crew who are training to compete at the Battle of the Year International Championships that takes place in France. After a decade of defeat, the crew and their coach must go up against the best and greatest breakdancers around the world; the Koreans, Russians and French, who have dominated the original American dance for the last 10 years.

Joining Brown and Holloway in the cast ensemble are Laz Alonso, Josh Peck and Caity Lotz. Beau Flynn, Amy Lo and Tripp Vinson will produce the movie for Screen Gems.

As for Brown, before starring in "Takers" he has made some big screen stints, including "This Christmas" and a dance-themed pic "Stomp the Yard", both in 2007. He'll next be seen in a comedy "Think Like a Man".
