*Chris Brown will star opposite Meagan Good and “The View’s” Sherri Shepherd in the upcoming basketball-themed film “Phenom.”
The synopsis: With the NBA playoffs right around the corner, the press learns that the league’s new hotshot player — a young man who went pro after high school — is the illegitimate son of an aging NBA star. The player attempts to make a life with his newly-found father and step brother.
Henry Simmons will play Brown’s father, Donta Storey his half-brother and Grayson Boucher his best friend. Meagan Good will play his love interest.
The project has been in the works for four years. Brown first spoke of “Phenom” in March 2007, telling MTV: “Basketball is my thing, other than singing and dancing, and that’s what I’m gonna show the world.”
Production is set to begin mid-2012 after the release of Brown’s next album, “Fortune.”
Speaking of “Fortune,” Breezy tweeted an update on the tracks.
“The new singles from FORTUNE are being mixed! STRIP is one of the singles off of FORTUNE so request at RADIO!” Brown wrote on Twitter of the Kevin McCall-assisted song. He then added, “I’m also really excited about the release of my single titled ‘BIGGEST FAN’ produced by the RUNNERS!”
Soon, the producers themselves began tweeting. The Runners wrote, “Yoo @chrisbrown “Biggest Fan” is gonna be epic!! And wait till they hear what else we have in the vault together! Ha!”
