This may sound redundant, but 2011 has definitely been Chris’ year. He’s made a tremendous comeback, from hit singles off of ‘F.A.M.E.’ to his tour and even his AMAs and Soul Train nominations. And now, Chris Brown can boost his movie discography with his latest role.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 22-year-old R&B singer has been tapped to star alongside Josh Holloway, Laz Alonso, Josh Peck and Caity Lotz in a new dance film entitled ‘Planet B Boy.’
Directed by Benson Lee, the film focuses on an international break-dancing battle, which raises little questions about why Brown was recruited for the role. Brown has been known for his eclectic dance moves on stage and even on screen, a la ‘Stomp The Yard.’
A released statement about ‘Planet B Boy’ reads that it is “about an all-star American b-boy crew training to compete in France at the Battle of the Year (BOTY) International Championships. After a decade of defeat, the crew and their coach must go up against the best and greatest b-boys in the world: the Koreans, the Russians and the French who have dominated the original American dance form for the last 10 years.”
Aside from ‘Stomp The Yard,’ Brown has also starred in ‘This Christmas’ and ‘Takers.’
