According to The Hollywood Reporter, R&B artist Robin Thicke is in negotiations to write his first film score for the urban drama “This Wednesday,” with wife Paula Patton lined up to star as a female pimp. Patton, known for lead roles opposite Denzel Washington in “Deja Vu” and OutKast’s Big Boi & Andre 3000 in “Idlewild,” will portray Wednesday, the “trick baby” of a pimp father and hooker mother. With her best friend’s support, she struggles to survive on the harsh streets of Philadelphia. The feature from writer-director Christine Crokos is inspired by the true story of a female pimp in Atlanta. “Wednesday” will be expanded from Crokos’ 2001 short “Heroine Helen,” about the same character. Shooting is expected to begin late this year in Philadelphia. Thicke’s recent album “The Evolution of Robin Thicke” reached the top five of the Billboard 200 last week, and its single “Lost Without U” has been at the top of the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for five weeks.
