Ja Rule finds Jesus and a God-fearing woman, played by Adrienne Bailon, in his latest film.
Produced by Reverence Gospel Media (“RGM”) both Ja and Bailon are starring in a new film called, “I’M IN LOVE WITH A CHURCH GIRL”. Check out the storyline:
Miles Montego (Ja Rule) has it all – cars, boats, good looks, mansion, money, women, but more importantly, he has a past. Miles is a retired high level drug trafficker who is now completely legitimate. Even though Miles has turned over a new leaf, the DEA can’t seem to let him out of their sights. Miles’ only downfall is that he is extremely loyal to his circle of friends and former colleagues who are not retired from the lucrative business. Struggling to keep on the right side of the law, Miles meets the one girl of his dreams but she’s not the usual type of girl that he’s used to dating. Vanessa (Adrienne Bailon) is a church girl in every sense of the word. They are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other. God continues to chip away at Miles through struggles from his past, having to live up to his reputation, feelings of unworthiness, the death of his mother…
In an interview with Vibe, Ja shared why he thought the role would be a perfect fit:
The director, Steve Race, he was like, ‘Ja’s the dude for this shit.’ I wasn’t even sure. I started reading the script and it was something I felt I could tackle that didn’t take me all the way outside of my element, but just far enough where people could actually see that I can act.
And here’s a teaser:
Thoughts? Can Ja and Adrienne pull this Tyler Perry-type flick off?
