This is a most excellent way to celebrate #ThrowBackThursday!
Nick Cannon's beat spewing flick, Drumline, is officially getting a sequel - set to air on VH1 this fall!
The new film, tentatively titled Drumline: A New Beat, will co-star Nick, who will also take on the role of executive producer.
Mariah Carey's man made a statement about his new
percussional professional undertaking, revealing:
“Drumline was not just a successful film; it was a cultural happening. Even though it was released over a decade ago, I am constantly approached by people on the street who tell me how much of an impact it made on them. As a producer, my thought was, ‘How do we create an updated version that would translate to today’s audience and still feel fresh and original?’ Adding a female lead character really makes sense, and VH1 is the perfect network to partner with on this modernized take on what is considered a unique and classic film experience.”
This redux will follow a brand new cast of teen drummers at a school in New Orleans - and since this was basically Nick's star-turning role, we can't wait to see these new line members play fiercely!
BAM BAM BAM!
