SHAUNIE O’NEAL one of VH1 show’s current “producers,” will co-produce with movie producer,TRACY EDMONDS, to make a film adaptation to the very popular reality tv series.
EDMONDS, the ex-boo of both EDDIE MURPHY and singer BABYFACE, confirmed that the movie will be much different than the show, and will focus more on the concept of living the basketball wife life.
“The beauty of a feature film is that we’ll have the ability to dig much deeper into the stories and characters that come from this very colorful world and create a very juicy action packed narrative,” EDMONDS tells Variety.
It’s being reported the film will center around a young woman who follows her boyfriend to Miami after he gets drafted into the NBA. Thrust into the world of professional sports, she meets and learns from the sisterhood of players’ wives and learns from their trials and tribulations.
EDMONDS took to Twitter to further explain to those who may be skeptical about her choice to take on the film saying, “The film introduces new characters with rich story lines & although juicy and action packed, it’ll empower! Entirely different project and characters. Exploring the world from a different perspective. Fantastic script and story!”
