T.I. Starring In and Co-Producing New High School Music Drama ‘Glow Up’
T.I. continues to make moves in Hollywood, this time starring in and co-producing a new music drama called Glow Up.
Deadline reports the film will follow an all-girl high school performance group at an underfunded Los Angeles United School District school, who "use their talents to try and save their financially-strapped music program by competing in a national singing competition with a huge cash prize." Basically, this sounds like Pitch Perfect meets Bring It On?
In addition to producing and starring in the movie, T.I. will also fittingly curate the music for the film.
Continuing his Hollywood presence, Tip is set to reprise his role in Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp, one of a slew of Marvel films set to be released this year following the massive success of Black Panther. That movie will hit theaters this summer, on July 6.
But before that, later this month, T.I. will also star in the Netflix docu-series, Rapture, which will also focus on the daily lives of hip-hop stars including Dave East, Nas, Rapsody and more. The series will allow fans to experience “the artists’ lives with their families and friends, to sitting front row in the studio and grinding on tour, to experiencing the ecstatic power of moving the crowd.” That series will air beginning on March 30.
