Penning the screenplay is the writing team of Tina Chism and Antwone Fisher, as well as Gina Prince-Bythewood and Joe Robert Cole. Storyline is being kept under wraps, but project is said to be a contemporary music-and-dance-based urban story set in a rollerskating rink in Atlanta.

Warners theatrical production execs Kevin McCormick and Lauren Craniotes are overseeing production.
