Mr. Entertainment is about to prove that he can do more than just sing and dance.
Usher will star in a movie that will be produced by MTV Films and distributed by Paramount Pictures, according to his spokesperson. Usher will also be executive producing the film with his mother/manager, Jonetta Patton of J-Pat Management.
The original title of the film, a vehicle for Usher, had been “Confessions,” but MTV has decided to change the title of the project. As the feature is in the very early development stage, no title or release date has been set.
The busy artist is also developing a biopic on Jackie Wilson that he would star in and executive produce. No details on this project have been released.
No stranger to the big screen, Usher has acted in “Light It Up,” “She’s All That” and “The Faculty.”
