Project focuses on washed-up R&B star
Musicvideo helmer Erik White will direct dark comedy “Break It Down” for StarStream Entertainment, with music produced by Gregg Alexander.
White, whose credits include multiple episodes of “The Glee Project” and seven Chris Brown videos, will direct from a script by Ted Beck. White made his feature film helming debut on “Lottery Ticket.”
“Break It Down” is produced by StarStream Entertainment’s Liz Destro and Jordan Kessler, who produced Toronto Film Festival closing-night film “Life of Crime,” starring Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins and John Hawkes. They also exec produced “Lee Daniels’ ‘The Butler.’”
“Break It Down” follows a washed-up ’90s R&B star who must come to terms with his selfish and destructive behavior in order to get his band back together and court the woman of his dreams.
Alexander recently collaborated with director John Carney for “Can a Song Save Your Life.”
