T.I. continues making moves in Hollywood.
The Atlanta-bred rapper-actor has joined forces with Robbie Brenner (‘Burden’), PepsiCo’s Creators League, Kevin McKeon, and his producing partner, Brian Sher, to co-produce and star in an upcoming musical drama, titled, ‘Glow Up’.
Written by Chuck Hayward and directed by Justin Francis, the film centers around the lives of an all-girl high school-aged singing group at an underprivileged school in the Los Angeles United Scoot District. In efforts to save their “financially-strapped” music program, the teenagers put their talents to use by competing in a national singing competition that offers a big cash award.
However, they suddenly find themselves in a bind when the lead singer is no longer able to participate, and they must rely on their “charismatic, yet unconventional,” new replacement to help guide them on their path to stardom.
According to Deadline, there is no further details available on T.I.’s character just yet. But, we do know that he is set to curate the music for the production’s soundtrack via Grand Hustle Films.
