Nick Cannon to write, produce, direct and star in women's street basketball film, co-starring Chris Brown and Evan Ross

Nick Cannon is writing, directing, producing and starring in an upcoming indie film, She Ball. 

He'll star with Cedric the Entertainer, Evan Ross, and Rebecca De Mornay. Faizon Love, K.D. Aubert, Luenell and Marla Gibbs are also a part of the cast.

As reported first by Variety She Ball "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 movie will feature real-life athletes from the WNBA, Ball Up and the Basketball Beauties League.

“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!” said Cannon.

Production on the film is already underway.
