|Chris Brown Set To Go Bone Deep|
Oo-er missus, relax - it's a heist pic!
11 July 2008 | Written by Chris Hewitt | Source: The Hollywood Reporter
|R&B star Chris Brown is stepping up his campaign to show that he’s more than just a singer – he’s in final negotiations to not only join the cast of heist thriller Bone Deep, but executive produce as well. |
Brown is set to line up alongside Matt Dillon, our very own Idris Elba, and the rapper, T.I., in the thriller, which sees a group of criminals plan a heist at a money depot, only for two detectives to end up right on their trail.
Brown will play one of the thieves – we’re not sure yet if that makes him a good guy or bad guy.
John Lussenhop will direct the film, which will be Brown’s fourth film with Screen Gems (which perhaps explains the executive producer credit). Although best known for his silky-voiced music, Brown has starred in Stomp The Yard and This Christmas, with sports drama Phenom also on his slate.

| If Chris Brown was who i think he was on The O.C then that was some god awful acting. He'd better not bring down Stringer Bell's good name More|

|Ever heard of Will Smith, Mos Def (well said cece), Jamie Foxx, Tupac Shakur, Tyrese Gibson (thank you bronco3114)....gosh what's with the fucking ignorance? Yes he might not be a good actor, although in stomp the yard he didn't really need to be-my God he's a damn good dancer, but give him and R&B/rap stars a break. He might just surprise you!

|RE: Really bad news|
|Queen Latifa, Jenifer Hudson and Tyrese Gibson come to mind. A boarderline call is Jaime Foxx. I know he's a comedian/actor/singer/classically trained pianst/anoying talented bastard but he did have a very unsuccessfull album out before he made it as a comedian and subsequent actor etc More|

|Who is he? I've never heard of him. And why is it rappers or whatever think they can all act, R&B/Rap takes minimal talent as it is, so they really shouldn't stretch themselves. More|

|Really bad news|
|This item has just started a really heated debate in our office ( breaks and lunches only) regarding the fact that we can only figure out a few Rappers/r&B singers which have been able to transverse the gap between singing and movies. We came up WIth JJ cool J ( dubious) and Ice Cube(even though he has made more bad movies than good). you got any others that were good? More|

| Chris who?|
| Who the fuck is Chris Brown? Not seen any of those films and do not listen or care about R&B. However I do like a good heist movie so if Matt Dillon is on board I may check it out. More|
