Nick Cannon Directing & Starring In “She Ball”, Chris Brown Co-Starring
The hustle continues for Nick Cannon. The 37-year-old actor, rapper and TV host has a new project that puts him both in front and behind the camera. He is directing, writing, producing, and starring in “She Ball,” an indie film about women’s street basketball. He will star alongside singer Chris Brown, Cedric the Entertainer, Evan Ross, and Rebecca De Mornay, as well as Faizon Love, K.D. Aubert, Luenell, and Marla Gibbs.
The indie follows the love of the game through the struggles of Avery Watts, played by Cannon, who enlists the baddest women’s streetball league in the city to help him save the embattled Inglewood Community Center, which he manages, all while trying to raise his seven-year-old daughter.
The project will feature real-life athletes from the WNBA, Ball Up, and the Basketball Beauties League, including Melody Rae Kandil, Jaliyah Manuel, and former Harlem Globetrotter Tammy Brawner. Cannon says about the project,
I’m very excited for this film. It’s something powerful for the culture, uplifting for the community, and the film’s main objective is to empower women! It’s going to be Ncredible!
Production has already begun on “She Ball.”
