In a few months, T.I will return to the big screen to reprise his role as Dave in the upcoming Marvel Studios film Ant-Man and the Wasp, and the rapper seemingly has no plans to slow down anytime soon. According to a new report from Deadline, T.I has already nabbed his next acting role: this time for the upcoming music drama Glow Up.
In addition to starring in the film, T.I will score and co-produce the drama alongside Robbie Brenner, PepsiCo's Creators League, Kevin McKeon and his manager Brian Sher. Chuck Hayward (writer behind Netflix's Dear White People and Step Sisters) penned the script; Justin Francis, known for producing music videos for the likes Jidenna, Trey Songz, Demi Lovato and more, has signed on to direct the film.
The film centers on an all-female performance group from a Los Angeles high school who enters a singing competition in an effort to use the cash prize to save their school's underfunded and almost-defunct music program. But the girls are faced with a major problem as their lead singer leaves and a new “charismatic, yet unconventional” lead singer steps up, forcing the group to band together for the sake their music program.
A release date for the film has not been set yet; fans can catch T.I in Ant-Man and the Wasp in theaters this July.
