Warner Bros. Pictures has pacted with musicvideo helmer Chris Robinson to come aboard its untitled rollerskating comedy, previously known as “Jellybeans.”
Robinson is best known for helming musicvids for hip-hop artists including Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, P. Diddy and Faith Evans.
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.
Overbrook partners James Lassiter and Will Smith, as well as Dallas Austin, Jody Gerson and T-Boz, are producing the pic.
Warners theatrical production execs Kevin McCormick and Lauren Craniotes are overseeing production.
