Nick Cannon Is Directing An Independent Film About Women’s Street Basketball…Co-Starring Chris Brown

December 20, 2017 / Posted by:

Why yes, I would love to see a movie about women’s street basketball. I’m not really a sports person but I appreciate and am inspired by the athletes’ hard work and dedication.  According to Variety, one is in the works vis a vis Nick Cannon’s production company. Nick is a meh for me but the idea sounds pretty great all the same. My interest is piqued! #womenrock #ladyballers But wait….

Variety reports:

“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!

Okay. Okay! Finally, the industry is starting to figure out what people want to see. You can just go ahead and take my money now. What’s that you say, Nick Cannon is actually in it? I guess that’s not a deal breaker. Is he the sidekick to the main protagonist? A little comic relief? I might even allow him to be a love interest if we have to go there, though, a movie about women’s basketball that doesn’t involve a romance plot but was instead focused on the sport and the inner lives of the athletes would be better. At least they didn’t do something really dumb like put Chris Brown in it because that would be riri-diculous.

Nick Cannon is directing, writing, producing, and starring in “She Ball,” an indie film about women’s street basketball. Cannon will star alongside Chris Brown, Cedric the Entertainer, Evan Ross, and Rebecca De Mornay.

To bring authenticity to the project, the movie will feature real-life athletes from the WNBA, Ball Up, and the Basketball Beauties League.

*record scratch*

Say what now? Honestly, I am so mad at myself for being surprised. Furious. I played myself. How could I have been so naive to believe, even for a second, that we’d gotten to the point where there might be an attempt to have a independent film about women’s basketball that was written by or directed by or at the very least starring a woman. But no, that’s not the world we’re living in.

“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.

I just… I just…Why? Why do we got to live in this world where the movie about women’s basketball is written, directed, produced and starring a dude with a penchant for turbans and not even the fabulous kind and co-stars an alleged lady-puncher and baby daddy to a fucking monkey. You guys, I am done. Please tell my family I loved them. If anybody needs me, I’ll be working on my bunker.
