Media mogul Nick Cannon and VH1 Dash Doll Melody Rae Kandil star in ‘She Ball‘ alongside Chris Brown, Fasion Love, Evan Ross, Cedric The Entertainer, DC Young Fly, and Birdman. Kicking off a powerhouse partnership, Cash Money Films and NCREDIBLE announce the upcoming film coming to theatres on February 2020.
Representing a union between Nick Cannon who wrote, produced, and directed She Ball. Multi-Platinum icons Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams & Chris Brown also produced and all three are starring alongside some of the most influential entertainers today including Cedric The Entertainer, DC Young Fly, Evan Rose, and Faizon Love in the movie.
Cannon explains, “This film is an important community-focused project dealing with Race, Gentrification, Criminal Justice and Women Empowerment. The movie tells a story of triumph against all odds as a young female athlete (played by Melody Rae Kandil) faces trials, tribulations, and triumph on and off the basketball court.
Cannon explains, “She Ball is about community, and the inclusive nature of controlling your own background. It’s a story that doesn’t have any boundaries. It’s a sports movie, it’s a love story, and it’s a comedy. I grew up on movies like Above The Rim, Love & Basketball, and even Save the Last Dance. It has a little bit of a combination of these three movies but with its own message. It’s an action-packed movie that’s full of laughs, but at the end of the day, it’s really just a great story about human connections.
“Birdman and I have been talking about doing movies together for so long and it finally all came together on this project. Chris Brown who is like family to me and such a visionary is truly one of the most gifted and talented spirits to ever grace this planet!. With a partnership between myself, Birdman, and Chris Brown. We took this all into our own hands. That’s empowering for our industry, and I’m grateful to have worked with such a dedicated team and especially talented cast.”
