Ne-Yo to Star in Movie Based on His Life Story

R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, who last month released his new album Year of the Gentleman, is planning a movie based on his life story. says he’s currently working on a film that is based on his life story.

The hitmaker who has been involved in the movie-making process and will star in the film, compares the project to Eminem’s 2002 biopic “8 Mile,” which was based on the Detroit rapper’s own rise to fame.

“We are putting together the film right now as we speak, as a matter of fact,” Ne-Yo tells Rap-up.com. “The name of the movie is ‘Venice Beach’ and basically it’s going to be my ‘8 Mile,’ loosely based on my life, but not really.”

Ne-Yo previously tested his acting skills with an appearance in 2007’s “Stomp the Yard.”
