Chris Brown just finished touring with Beyonce on the other side of the world and it looks like he might be taking a music break for the movies. Screen Gems has tapped Brown to star in Phenom, a story about a young basketball player who just turned pro and found out that he’s the illegitimate son of an aging NBA star. They then find themselves going head to head in the NBA Playoffs.
There’s no word on when production will start or when they plan to release the film. This will be Brown’s third film for Screen Gems, the first was “Stomp the Yard” which came out last year. The second is “This Christmas” which will hit theatres in November.
