R&B superstar Ne-Yo has written a script for a new movie - and used the film's storyline to inspire his next album. The "So Sick" hitmaker is in talks with Hollywood bosses to turn his screenplay into a big screen picture, and is hoping to release an album and graphic novel based on its plot.
He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I developed a script and I'm in the process of getting a Hollywood studio to turn it into a movie. My new album is a series of songs inspired by the script that I wrote, but it's not a musical."
"I've got a few friends in the graphic novel business, so we will storyboard it but release it as a book first. The underlying question is about your moral fibre. Is love, money and fame more important to you? The movie is really me and my friends answering that question."
