Ne-Yo headed to ‘Venice Beach’
Chart topping R&B act Ne-Yo is set to star, produce and write the soundtrack for Fox’s Atomic’s “Venice Beach.” Duane Adler who wrote “Save The Last Dance” and “Step Up” both in which Ne-Yo appeared will be writing the script. Paul Hunter who is best known for directing music videos for Eminem, Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears is set to direct the film. “Venice” centers on an 18-year-old Manhattan Beach woman who, after her talented older sister dies in a car accident, represses her own singing talent until she meets a gifted musician-singer (Ne-Yo) from Venice Beach. What starts as a budding romance between the two turns into a quest for a musical career, which is met with resistance from his friends and her family.
